FAQ

How do I find out if my son or daughter has been on the ice or in close contact with someone who has been ordered to Self Monitor due to being in contact with someone who has contracted COVID 19 (secondary contact)?

CLICK HERE for a list of ice times that have been identified as having someone who has had secondary contact with COVID 19. This does not mean that your athlete has been in direct contact with someone that has contracted COVID 19. As a reminder, health matters fall under the privacy act. Please do not post on social media or do anything that could jeopardize the individual's privacy or cause undue concern or alarm. 

What should I do when I have been in contact with someone who has contracted COVID 19 (secondary contact)?

Call 811 and Notify our COVID Officer: covid.officer@ridgemeadowshockey.com . While we require you to inform RMMHA of the incident, all details will be kept confidential. The Health Authority are the only ones that can clear you to return to RMMHA activities.

How do I find out if my son or daughter has been on the ice or in close contact with someone who has contracted COVID 19?

If an athlete or parent has contracted COVID 19 and you or your athlete has been in contact with them, you will be notified. 

What if my son or daughter has only minor symptoms that in any normal year I would ignore?

This is not a normal year. Please do not come to the rink until symptoms have disappeared and call 811 if symptoms persist or get worse. Our coaches have been instructed to send home athletes that are showing signs of illness and your son or daughter will then be required to have a physician's note in order to return to play.  

What if a parent or athlete has tested positive for COVID 19?

Notify our COVID Officer: covid.officer@ridgemeadowshockey.com and do not return to the rink. Once the health authority has stated that you and or your athlete are free from the virus and it is safe to return to the rink, notify us and await approval to return.
