CALGARY, Alta. – The following is a statement by Scott Salmond, Senior Vice President, National Teams, on behalf of Hockey Canada, on the Canadian Junior National Sport Chek Selection Camp.
« Hockey Canada already confirmed today that a non-core junior team member tested positive for COVID-19. When our staff found out about the positive test this morning, they immediately took action and took every precaution to avoid the risk of exposure to our players, coaches and support staff. The employee who tested positive and a number of colleagues who were in close contact with this person were quarantined at the team hotel in Red Deer. Today’s red and white game continues as planned as protocols dictated that the athletes’ health and safety were not compromised.
As per Hockey Canada’s safety protocols, all players, coaches and staff have completed mandatory COVID-19 tests upon arrival at camp and have been tested regularly throughout the week. Our medical team will continue to follow all protocols as directed by the Alberta Health Service and closely monitor the situation. The relevant local and regional health authorities have been made aware of the situation and we will not provide any further comments at this time. ”
