Hockey PEI Communications | Dec 14th, 2021

CHARLOTTETOWN, PE – As an added layer of protection to reduce risk of importation and transmission, the CPHO has announced the following temporary measures effective 8:00 am on Friday, December 17 until early January as it pertains to Sport:

GAMES & PRACTICES: Regular practices and league games can occur involving a maximum of 50 participants per day (not including spectators). Example – If your O’Leary Maroons U11 team plays at home on Saturday morning and wants to play another game in Charlottetown against the Abbies that evening, they would not be permitted to play the second game against the Abbies.

TRAVEL: There will be no travel to or from PEI for people to participate in organized recreational activities, including sports, regardless of age. The Maritime Junior Hockey League and the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League are exempt from these travel restrictions, at this time.

  • Furthermore, everyone travelling to PEI will be asked to wait for two hours for their result of their point of entry test, before joining their family or going to a public place. Individuals arriving in PEI are strongly recommended to test on day 4 and to follow modified isolation during those first four days. This means not attending large gatherings, larger personal gatherings, or visiting those in long term care, community care or other congregate settings. They should also avoid visiting with immune compromised or elderly individuals until their day four test if possible.

MASKS – Masks will continue to be required in indoor public places, preferably a medical grade or three-layer mask worm properly over both the nose and mouth. Masks can be removed when actively eating or drinking and can no longer be removed when seated at organized gatherings like worship services or concerts. Masks should be worn in workplaces where physical distancing cannot be maintained and in any outdoor spaces when you are in close contact with people from outside your household.

  • Moving forward, Team Pictures are still permitted, however, masks must be worn at all times while doing so. They may post these pictures online should they follow these measures. Please ensure all teams are made aware of this.

 TOURNAMENTSThere will be no tournaments of any sort, regardless of the age of participants in PEI.

  • Jamboree type events that consist of PEI-based teams only, and there are no more than 50 participants competing against each other on any particular day, can go ahead. This is permitting there is no Sunday play-offs and no awards. For example, if each team is only playing against one other team that day, then it can go ahead.

As always, everyone is encouraged to follow routine prevention measures:

  • Wash hands frequently with soap and water
  • Cough and sneeze into your elbow or a tissue
  • Get vaccinated
  • Wear a non-medical mask in indoor places
  • Stay home if you are not feeling well
  • Limit touching your eyes, nose, and mouth
  • Keep your circle of contacts small
  • Physical distance – stay two meters (6 feet) apart
  • Don’t share items like drinking glasses and water bottles
  • Frequently clean surfaces like taps, doorknobs, and countertops
  • Visit a drop-in-clinic to be tested if you have COVID-19 symptoms
