FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - Vaccinated fans attending this weekend’s Fairbanks Ice Dogs games are not required to wear a mask, according to the organization.

The Fairbanks North Star Borough - the owners and operators of the Big Dipper Ice Arena - is following the recently updated guidelines from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) that states those who are fully vaccinated may “resume activities without wearing a mask or staying 6 feet apart, except where required by federal, state, local, tribal, or territorial laws, rules, and regulations, including local business and workplace guidance.”

The organization is asking those who are not feeling well to not attend games.

The Ice Dogs the Minnesota Magicians for the first round of the Robertson Cup Playoffs Friday and Saturday, with puck drop at 7:30 p.m. both nights. If the series is tied 1-1 or the Ice Dogs trail 0-2 after Saturday, game three will take place at 5:00 p.m. Sunday at the Big Dipper.

Tickets for this weekend’s games are still on sale at the Fairbanks Ice Dogs Office (139 32nd Avenue) until 4:00 p.m. Friday and again from 5:00 p.m. until puck drop at the Big Dipper.
