Due to concern over public safety in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, Hobbs Ice
Arena will be temporarily closed to the public beginning Wednesday, November 18,
2020. The City of Eau Claire Community Services Department and its Recreation Division leadership 
will re-evaluate the closure on Tuesday, December 8, 2020. Services affected include: hockey 
practices, figure skating, open skating, competitive games, and any winter programming planned at

The message from both Governor Evers and the Eau Claire City-County Health Department is that we 
avoid gatherings of any size with individuals who are not members of our immediate family or 
household. The Eau Claire Skating Community is passionate about your sport, and we know you are as 
passionate about doing your part to help keep our entire Eau Claire Community safe by temporarily 
pausing your gatherings at Hobbs Ice Arena. Stay well and we look forward to welcoming you back to 
the rink as soon as we can safely do so.
