Bowling alleys reopen under new safety guidelines

Top Stories

GREEN ISLAND, N.Y. (NEWS10) — Bowling alleys officially reopened in New York as of Monday morning.

The reopening comes after the Governor’s recent announcement on Friday. Bowling alleys were originally supposed to be in the initial stage of Phase 4 but were left out of the process.

Now, they’ll return at 50 percent capacity and that’s just one of many safety protocols in place, especially with shared equipment.

Part of the reopening process is that now, they’ll be spaced out more than ever. Every other lane must be closed and bowlers must stay within their own party at the lane. Face masks or coverings must be worn at all times and there must be a thorough cleaning and disinfection process for shared and rented equipment.

Every bowling ball and its gripping holes will be cleaned before and after each use. The staff at Green Island Lanes is prepared to open at Noon on Monday and they’re taking extra precautions for every step of the way.

“We have rubber gloves for people who need to use the alley ball so they will put the rubber glove on, check their bowling ball to see which one they want and once they find it they will leave it on the lane and we will go down spray it down and put it on the rack,” Manager Dan Walsh said.

Green Island Lanes will provide shoe pads for their bowlers if they would like to put them over their sneakers while on the lanes.
