News and Announcements
There have been some questions on proper protocols if a player has experienced some COVID symptoms and, as a result, has missed a practice or game. Originally a doctor’s note was required. This has now been revised and attached is a chart of the accepted procedure.
The participant should isolate at home and complete the COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool. The isolation should continue for a minimum of 24 hours and if the symptoms have resolved, they can return to hockey activity.
A copy of this is also available on the home page of the BC Hockey website.
