NAI Hockey Season 2020/2021 Special Considerations

 

Hockey Alberta Contact Tracing Update

With the recent announcement that Alberta has removed runny noses and sore throat from child  COVID-19 symptom checklist I wanted to share the updated flow chart used to help players and families through the process of participating in hockey.

 

The  second change I wanted to highlight was the shift in how the AHS contract tracers intend to utilize event organizers in supporting the communication process, should an attendee test positive. This is outlined below and while we are still learning the details and different scenarios that are taking place, I wanted to provide a heads up should AHS be in contact with those in your association that have been identified as the event organizer.

 

If Alberta Health Services identifies a confirmed case of COVID-19 that was infectious while attending an event you organized, AHS will contact you (the event organizer) and direct you to notify all attendees who are considered exposed to COVID-19.

To support event organizers in managing this notification, we - AHS - will provide you with written notification that you will be directed to send to all event attendees, by email, within 24 hours of AHS directing you to do so.

Where email addresses are not available and more rapid email notification is not possible, AHS will continue to make phone calls where necessary. AHS will also continue to directly notify close contacts of cases who were exposed outside of any event.

This change will improve the efficiency of the close contact notification process for events that have high risk of rapid spread of illness, such as sports tournaments, weddings, church socials and other gatherings of 10 or more people.
