Submitted By Steve Fontaine on Thursday, October 1, 2020
When an individual becomes unwell with symptoms of COVID-19If an individual becomes
unwell with symptoms of COVID-19, or if someone is aware of an individual that becomes unwell with symptoms of COVID-19, that individual must immediately stop participation in hockey activities.

If applicable, a BMHA volunteer or facility staff, will be assigned to supervise the individual.

The identified BMHA volunteer or facility staff must isolate the individual from all others, in a well
ventilated area, or outside and ensure use of a non-medical face mask, if one is available. Where
possible, everyone should maintain a distance of 2 meters from the ill individual.
The individual who was isolated, will be required to go home and follow public health guidelines
regarding self-isolation and testing. The identified staff, or delegate, may be required to assist with
contacting parent/guardian, as well as providing instruction on public health guidelines, under the
direction of the SMDHU. The BMHA will be prepared to provide SMDHU details, such as phone number,
website, pre-printed pamphlets or an email with instructions to the isolated individual.
The facility that the ill individual was being isolated in shall be informed, as soon as possible, in order to
determine if any areas within that facility need to be closed off and/or require additional
cleaning/disinfecting.

The team coach or trainer should be informed as soon as possible. The team coach or trainer is
responsible to inform the BMHA President or General Manager.
Any individual that is part of a hockey program that has been tested for COVID-19, must not participate
in hockey activities while waiting for the results of the test and not cannot return to any hockey related
activities until a negative test result is received.
Any BMHA members who were in close contact with the individual and is showing identified symptoms
of Covid-19, should not participate in hockey activities and should follow public health guidelines.
If an individual tests positive for COVID-19, they should inform a member of the BMHA as soon as
possible. The BMHA will then provide the necessary information to facility and public health officials to
assist in contact tracing.
We will work to assist public health officials in informing other members, who may have been in close
contact with the individual.
Any BMHA members who were in close contact with the individual should not participate in hockey
activities for 14 days and should follow public health guidelines regarding self-isolation and testing.
In the case of a positive COVID 19 test the BMHA will immediately inform the facility to determine if
there is a need for any additional cleaning /disinfecting as per public health protocols.
