These guidelines will be reviewed regularly and are subject to change at any time.
Applicable to all players, coaches, parents and volunteers - DO NOT come to any practice, game or team activity if you have any of the symptoms of COVID-19, or have received a positive result on a COVID-19 test. Coaches and managers are required to send any visibly symptomatic individuals home, with the full support of HMHA. If you are symptomatic, you must follow the Provincial and AHS guidelines. We are trusting each one of our members to self assess for their symptoms and to follow the recommendations of AHS.
HMHA will continue to follow all of the guidelines and mandates of the Town of Hinton and their facility, Hockey Alberta, Alberta Health Services, the Chief Medical Officer of Health and the Provincial Government.
Contact Tracing in Alberta is being scaled back. Although it is not currently mandatory to disclose a positive COVID result, if your player has tested positive and you would like to notify your team and have your identity kept confidential, you may report to HMHA using the email@example.com email address. Confidentiality will be maintained to the best of our ability, emails will be deleted and names will not be shared. The affected team or activity participants will be notified by email that a participant in their group has tested positive for COVD-19 and to monitor themselves for symptoms for the next 10-14 days.
Close contact quarantine is not currently necessary.
All coaches & players are required to wear masks the facility, in dressing rooms and on the bench. We will follow city and provincial mask mandates as appropriate.
If your player is symptomatic and/or COVID positive during the period surrounding evaluations, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org as possible. Please DO NOT have your player participate in any activity or evaluation while ill or requiring mandatory quarantine. In any cases of evaluations being missed due to Covid-19 positivity or symptoms, player placement will be assessed on a case by case basis, in conjunction with the Coach Coordinator and select coaches from that level.
At this time, Hockey AB has no team cohort guidelines implemented for the 2021/22 season.
