Re: Travel to New Brunswick
Good afternoon everyone,
Following our consultations with Nova Scotia Public Health and Nova Scotia Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Robert Strang, we have been advised that fully vaccinated teams can now travel to New Brunswick for sporting events provided that the event (game, tournament, etc.) they are attending has a requirement for both spectators and participants to show proof of vaccination (POV).
Teams with unvaccinated players under 12 are not permitted to travel to tournaments in New Brunswick where a circuit breaker is in place.
While travelling to New Brunswick for competition, all local COVID-19 protocols and Public Health orders must be followed.
Our Chief Medical Officer Dr. Tina Atkinson would also like to strongly encourage all our teams and hockey families to follow these guidelines to further decrease the risk of a COVID-19 exposure:
·Wear masks at all times while indoors (only removing them for eating, drinking, and playing hockey).
·Always wear masks while in crowded outdoor spaces where physical distancing cannot be maintained.
·Avoid crowded restaurants (and only visit restaurants where servers are masked).
·Wash and sanitize hands frequently.
·Avoid close contact with people you don’t know.
·Consider shopping for essential items only.
