COVID-19 Update: July 24, 2020

After discussion with CCH and Public Health, we’d like to inform you of an update to the Public Health approved NS Sport Guidelines. This update is applicable to sport settings where up to 50 participants, physically distanced, are taking part in a sport activity, and reads as follows:

“In a defined sport setting where participants are physically distancing in one group of 50 or less, incidental contact, (where a participant comes into close contact, less than two metres, with another participant), that is infrequent, brief, and cannot be avoided may occur.”

For clarity, this does not allow for possession-based team sports such as soccer or hockey, where participants would normally be within two metres for frequent and long periods of time, to resume normal play.

If you think that this update will provide an opportunity to expand your sport’s allowable activities, please feel free to provide us with a brief description of the incidental contact that would occur, and we will work with CCH to review and reply to you.

In addition, we wanted you to know that we will continue to work together over the coming weeks to determine if further changes to regulations may be possible as we approach the fall sport season, and will provide you with that information as soon as it becomes available.

Take care,

Jamie Ferguson
