A positive case of COVID-19 has been confirmed in a staff member working on the arena side of Repsol Place. The arena has been closed and all arena programming has been cancelled for the day, including the Dangler Academy Hockey Camp. A deep clean of the facility will be conducted prior to the arenas reopening.
The pool side has been kept separate and there has been no contact between the separate staffs. Because of this, pool programming will be allowed to continue today as scheduled.
AHS contact tracing will be done. Any staff members that are considered close contacts will also be following the Provincial isolation and testing requirements.
