COVID
Submitted By Kim Morrison-Edgar on Friday, September 25, 2020
Twisters Families, 

By now, you may have heard that one of our players has tested positive for COVID-19, likely as a result of contact with students who tested positive in one of our community schools. We have been in contact with public health and the OWHA and are following their directions. To protect the confidentiality of medical information, public health has directed that they are to be the ones to inform persons who were in close contact with the player that they need to self-isolate or get tested. We have provided them with our contact tracing logs and will continue to cooperate fully with their efforts.


We would like to take this opportunity to remind everyone how important it is to comply fully with our COVID-19 protocols which can be found on our website at https://nhgha.com/Articles/3804/Twisters_Return_to_Play_Plan_and_Protocols/

In particular, please make sure you carefully screen yourself and your family before attending any Twisters activity. You may wish to use the government's online school screening tool at https://covid-19.ontario.ca/school-screening/
If you are experiencing symptoms of COVID-19, have come into close contact with a confirmed or probable case of COVID-19, or have been tested for COVID-19 and are still awaiting results, let your coach and manager know and STAY HOME. 

We would also like to reiterate the importance of maintaining social distancing and frequent washing or sanitizing of hands. When entering or exiting the arena, sitting on benches, or lining up from drills, players must keep a minimum 6 ft / 2 m from each other at all times. Players are allowed to come closer than 6 ft / 2 m during drills or, once permitted, game play but should do so as briefly as possible. 

We all need to work together to keep our players, staff, and families as safe as possible. Thank you all for your help in following the COVID-19 protocols. If you have questions about them, please feel free to contact us at [email protected].
