In addition to the school closures above, The CPHO has announced the suspension of recreational sports and extracurricular activities for children under the age of nineteen (19) in the Charlottetown area for the next three (3) days.

Some Details to highlight.

  1. Players can only enter 30 to 15 minutes before ice time. We would like all players in the building 15 minutes prior to ice time.
  2. Players and parents should not block the entrance walkway (stay in your car until it is time to enter)
  3. Players cannot enter until the contact tracer is in the lobby and ready to enter the group.
  4. All player and spectator lists must be turned into the canteen at the end of each ice time.
  5. Spectators Enter the building once all players are in and the spectators from the ice time before having left the building.
  6. You must have a volunteer in the lobby to do contact tracing once this person leaves, we will lock the arena doors.
  7. Your volunteer Contact tracer must ensure at exit time that there is no crossover with players and spectators. (Communicating with our staff will be helpful as they can help)
  8. U7 to U9 (kids that need parents in the dressing room) these parents can go in with the players but they must stay in the dressing rooms and then move to the top of the arena to watch and then return to the dressing room when the kids are leaving the ice.
  9. Spectators should remain in their seats until all the players have left the ice exiting once all players are in the dressing room.
  10. Camp Coaches will be able to use the ref's room when available. (Sometimes not available if this is the case, they need to change with the players or get a separate room)
