Covid-19 Information

The safety and well-being of our guests, employees, and the URI Community is our top priority at the Boss Ice Arena. In an effort to keep everyone informed, the Boss Ice Arena has created this page as a resource of information regarding any events/rentals in the arena.  We ask that you check back to this page regularly for updated information on our re-opening procedures, new policies in regards to Covid-19, and any new event information.

Similar to the state and university approach, the policies and procedures are intended for a gradual return to full activity. As we gradually reopen, we will continue to monitor and follow the recommendations and guidelines of the CDC, university, local, state, and federal government health officials. Adjustments to the policies and procedures and schedules may be altered at any time.

We have taken enhanced health and safety measures to protect our venue guests. However, there is an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place where people are present. COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the CDC, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. By entering the venue, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, and Venue disclaims any and all liability related thereto.


In accordance with the guidance and recommendations set forth by the CDC and local health officials, we respectfully request that the following guests not enter Boss Ice Arena:

  • Guests who are feeling sick or experiencing cold or flu-like symptoms (including fever, cough, and shortness of breath).

  • Guests who have been diagnosed with, or believe to have contracted, COVID-19, unless you have had no fever for 72 hours (without the use of medicine) and 10 days have passed since symptoms first appeared.

  • Guests who have been in contact with an individual diagnosed with COVID-19 within the past 14 days.

  • Guests who have traveled internationally in the past 14 days.
