Good day folks and happy Friday the 13th!
We wanted to share an update with you in light of yesterday's Government of Alberta and Dr. Hinshaw's announcement. It without a doubt came with a lot of confusion and uncertainty. We ask that you bear with us while we work with all the information and updates and the ever evolving Covid-19 pandemic situation.
As of right now we are fortunate that our community isn't effected by the recent mandatory restrictions being put on by the Government of Alberta on indoor sports. WMH practices can continue as scheduled at the Scott Safety Arenas, however; Games as of right now are cancelled for the two week period as per NAI League.
That being said, let's not take that for granted. We must remain extra vigilant and work extra hard to make sure our kids continue to play the sport we all love.
Since return to hockey we've been proactive in putting measures in place to reduce the risk of exposure for our athletes and we are actively tracking parents and players who participate in our activities to ensure prompt communication in the case of positive Covid-19 exposure.
Please remember to stay home as much as possible, practice hand washing hygiene, keep 2 meter distance between yourself and others, limit contact with others when outside your home, limit your cohorts, avoid greetings like handshakes and hugs, wear a mask where possible.
