DATE: FRIDAY, MARCH 19th, 2021
SUBJECT: UPDATE REGARDING NEW CASES OF COVID-19 ON PRINCE EDWARD ISLAND
Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Heather Morrison, has announced four new positive cases of COVID-19 in Prince Edward Island today.
A close contact of one of the positive cases is a male under the age of 19 and has also tested positive. This individual was involved in minor sport activities. Close contacts (eg: teammates, coaching staff) are being contacted by public health, will be asked to go get tested and will need to self-isolate immediately, so they will not be participating in any sport activities this weekend. If any public exposure notifications are required after a further risk assessment, they will be released as soon as possible by the CPHO.
The 2020-21 Provincial Championships are currently on-going and necessary changes to the schedule will be made. Hockey PEI will continue to work closely with the CPHO and take recommendations and directions from their office.
