Covid Restrictions easing up in select areas of Russia

News began to break on social media regarding the Moscow Hockey Federation’s approval of 50 percent spectator attendance in arenas for games contests. Previously, hockey games both professional and amateur had been played in front of empty stadiums. 

Parents and family members throughout the Moscow Region will certainly celebrate being able to return to the bleachers, watching their kids take the ice with a front row seat. Conversely, players will welcome an uptick in the atmosphere with cheering fans, noise makers and chants of support. 

All people in attendance will continue to observe COVID-19 restrictions in terms of face masks and social distancing during these events.
