Travel Returns to NSU16AAAHL as of this weekend

Well, we just got the update that our league can go back to regular travel back and forth between NB and NS!! 

Fortunately, we did not lose a lot of games over the last month, but we do have some work to do to reschedule a few things that were moved around. Please have some patience as we try to get the schedule back on track. This weekend's schedule is now updated on the website .
 
Things are a go-to attend the Monctonian as well. 
 
From Hockey Nova Scotia
 

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. Please visit the Government of New Brunswick website to find up-to-date information about what areas of the province are currently under circuit breaker restrictions. 

 

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 of 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.

We would also like to remind you all to follow the Rebound Plan 2.0 and keep a close eye on exposure notices from the province.

 

Sincerely,

 

Amy Walsh
