November 17 Update:
Targeted public health measures came into effect November 13 in Alberta, impacting hockey, and other indoor team sports, in specific areas of the province.
Details of the announcement by the Government of Alberta were provided by Hockey Alberta to its Members in an Information Bulletin sent out on Thursday, November 12.
Since the announcement, Hockey Alberta has been establishing communication plans with Alberta Health Services, Leagues and Minor Hockey Associations. As a result of these discussions, Hockey Alberta has put together an FAQ document to address questions regarding what is allowed within our sport during the 14-day pause in activity. The FAQ document was updated on November 17 to provide further clarification.
The FAQ can be found on the Return to Hockey page and will be updated as is appropriate.
The Government of Alberta today announced a mandatory two-week pause on indoor group fitness classes and team sport activities. The pause applies to Edmonton and surrounding areas, Calgary and surrounding areas, Grande Prairie, Lethbridge, Fort McMurray and Red Deer. The full list of surrounding communities (for the Calgary and Edmonton regions) is available on the Government of Alberta website.
