Port Huron, MI — It’s been a long time since the puck has dropped on the McMorran ice, but things are starting to move closer to normal at McMorran Place Sports and Entertainment Center in Downtown Port Huron. The ice arena has reopened to high school hockey teams and the Port Huron Prowlers could be taking to the ice this season.
The ice arena has new lights, new seats, and fresh ice; it just needs some players and fans to feel like the old days before the pandemic.
There are extensive precautions being taken to keep athletes and staff healthy. Entry procedures have been carefully constructed and include entry through the North entrance of the arena only. Players will need to scan a QR code which will link them to a COVID-19 screening questionnaire. Temperatures will be taken and only those who pass the health check can enter the building.
Only players and coaches are allowed in the locker room. Kids aged ten and under can have an adult accompany them. Masks and social distancing are expected, all in an effort to keep the arena open and give the area’s youth hockey players and the professional team a chance at a real competitive season.
