Hockey Manitoba Return to Play - Phase 4 Update
Please read the message from Hockey Manitoba with regard to COVID-19.
Hockey Manitoba would like to remind our members that all hockey programming for the Winnipeg Metropolitan region (Capital region) has been suspended effective Monday November 2, 2020.
For the safety of all members, both hockey teams and individuals (players, officials, and team staff) residing in the Provincial Response Level: Critical (Red) are ineligible to participate in hockey programming beginning November 2, 2020 and will be revisited on November 15, 2020.
In all health regions outside the Winnipeg Metropolitan region, hockey programming can continue with usual capacity reduced to 25% effective Monday November 2, 2020. Facilities are required to limit capacity in all areas including dressing rooms. Hockey Manitoba suggests that players dress at home to comply with facility requirements and limit spectators to one per player. For example, if a dressing room can typically hold 20 people (usual capacity) 25% would be limited to 5 players at a time. Players must either dress in shifts or arrive dressed. Once players are dressed they should isolate in another area of the facility where physical distancing can occur.
