Broomball Return to Play Protocol – COVID-19 Phase 3
Effective Monday September 28, 2020, all players, coaches, staff, volunteers, spectators, and officials will be required to wear face masks in facilities where Manitoba Broomball sanctioned activities take place.
Players and officials are not required to wear face masks while on the ice engaging in physical activity but are required to wear face masks in the dressing room prior to getting on the ice and while entering and leaving the players bench. Team officials, including coaches, are required to wear face masks while on the bench.
The Return to Play plan incorporates the current requirements outlined in Stages 1 – 4 of the Government of Manitoba’s Restoring Safe Services Plan, health and guidelines from Broomball Canada.
The Return to Play Broomball Plan has three phases:
Manitoba Broomball will continue to strive towards placing our members in a safe and healthy environment. Physical distancing, mask wearing, good hand hygiene and screening are necessary steps that must be practiced in order to return to broomball safely, and will assist in reducing the risk to the broomball community.
Participants, coaches and spectators must stay home if they’re feeling unwell or show any symptoms of COVID-19 or have come into contact with someone with COVID-19.
Participants, coaches and spectators are encouraged to use the self-screening tool prior to participating in broomball activities (https://sharedhealthmb.ca/covid19/screeningtool/.
