The 100 Mile House Minor Hockey Association has suspended operations due to a riding number of COVID-19 cases in the community.
President Roxanne Sutton announced late Saturday evening that the board of directors made this decision to protect the players, coaches, their families and the broader community. She added this was not something they took lightly.
“Depending on how the outbreak evolves over the next 14 days or potentially longer, we will remain on a break,” Sutton said.
Sutton urges all members of the association to do their part to help stop the spread of COVID-19. She asks that if any players or their families are feeling unwell to please stay home.
For further information, concerned parties are invited to reach out via email@example.com.
Up until now, the minor hockey players had been able to continue to practice on the ice at the South Cariboo Recreational Centre in a physically distanced manner, although they were unable to play hockey games. The league had hoped to begin playing games again, until Dr. Bonnie Henry’s extended B.C.’s health orders to Feb. 5.
