  • Contact a physician and call the local public health line. Follow isolation requirements of the Public Health Authorities. The participant will require a note from their physician to return to the activity
Participant Feels Sick And Advised Team Staff They Will Not Be Attending
  • Participants advised to follow up with their physician. They will require a note from their physician to return to activity
  • Any participant with suspected or confirmed COVID-19 should not return to the hockey environment until all Public Health Authority steps have been completed. They will require a note from their physician or Public Health Authority to return to activity

  • All other family members living in the household should also remain away from the hockey environment until all public Health Authority Steps have been completed as well
  • If participant is confirmed to have COVID-19 refer the the Tests Positive Section  
Participant Tests Positive For COVID-19 (Contacts their Physician and Follow Public Health Guidelines)
  • Immediate Removal from Hockey Environment for anyone in the home
  • Report to Public Health Authorities & Follow Guidelines
  • Public Health Authority determines Communication Protocol and Tracing of all contacts
  • Cooperate on any necessary communication
  • Note required from a physician or public health authority to return to play
NOTE: IF a sick participant (or their parent / guardian if the participant is a minor) elects to inform a team/hockey association/member that they have been diagnosed with COVID-19, the individual informed shall seek the sick participant / their parent's / guardian's consent to contact Public Health Authorities in order to obtain advice on communication with other potentially impacted participants. The sick participant (or their parent / guardian if the participant is a minor) should be asked to advise Public Health of this consent. 
Communication that will take place  will never disclose the sick participant's name.
 
If somone on your child's team tests positive for COVID-19 Public Health Authority guidelines will determine contact tracing and isolation requirements. It is possible, therefore, that one diagnosis on a team could lead to that team being required to pause hockey activities until the Public Health Authority deems it is safe to return.
