TUCSON, Ariz. — Skate Country officials say families are helping rollerskating make a comeback during the pandemic.

The indoor skating rink was forced to close in March but reopened in May.

It's only operating at 20 percent capacity and requiring customers to wear a mask while they skate.

"Just like most businesses across Tucson we are doing our part and keeping our doors open as long as we can," Skate Country's Part-Time Manager, Derek Leahy said. "Which involves following all those guidelines and making sure we are still here."

Thanks to a PPE loan, Skate Country was able to keep all employees during the pandemic.

The skating rink is open 7 days a week after 3 p.m.
