CoVid-19 Safety Protocols

Curling Safely This Season

Compliance with these protocols will reduce the risk of CoVid-19.

The Middlesex London Health Unit randomly checks for compliance to these protocols.

Pre-Game Protocols

  • Check the start time of your game on the website as game start times are staggered.
  • Arrive no earlier than 15 minutes prior to your game, unless you plan to eat, drink or watch a game.
  • Wear your mask in the clubhouse.
  • Sanitize your hands upon entry.
  • Maintain 6 feet of distance at all times.
  • Spend as little time in the locker room as necessary.
  • The ante room has floor markings where you may stand. This room has a capacity of 20 people.
  • Additional people may wait in the hall or upstairs.

Game Protocols

Complete CoVid Active Screening with your skip BEFORE starting play. All players’ names must be recorded on the Daily Active Screening Record found on each sheet.

  • No pre or post game handshakes; use a wave or broom tap.
  • Designate one team member to sanitize rock handles before each game.
  • Use Rock-Paper-Scissors to decide hammer.
  • Skip with hammer sanitizes the numbers on the scoreboard before each game.
  • Masks may be removed at the start of play.
  • Only touch the handles of your own 2 rocks.
  • Do not share any equipment such as stabilizers or sticks.
  • Follow directional movement and placement for team members (see diagram) – maintain 6 feet distance at all times.
  • Teams may now use two sweepers if desired, but CurlON states that masks must be worn in this situation. 
  • Sweeping behind the T-line may resume; however, we strongly recommend that the two skips do not go ‘head to head’ in any situation.
  • Only one person per team will return rocks to the backboards using feet and brooms only. Order of the rocks is not important.
