COVID Update
Submitted By Dan Dowling on Sat 01 09, 21
 The NDMH Executive wanted to take this opportunity to briefly communicate with its members.  As everyone is aware, our region entered a 28 day lockdown on December 26, 2020.  Under these conditions, the earliest possible date that NDMH teams could possibly return to on-ice activities would be January 25, 2021.  This is also the date that secondary students are scheduled to return to in-person instruction in our region.

 However, we do not feel that it is prudent at this time to commit to a return to on-ice activities for January 25, 2021. We believe that if all students are able to return to school as scheduled, the focus must be on their safe return to school first and foremost.  

 We are also required to provide a minimum of two weeks notice to the SPC in order to change our ice schedules in order to avoid financial penalty.  As this is a season of significant financial hardship for our organization, we are very cognizant of our financial commitments in regards to our ice contracts.  

 Hence, we are tentatively hoping for a return to on-ice activities February 8, 2021. This plan is very tenuous in nature given the uncertainties that we are all trying to navigate.  The Executive continues to meet on a bi-weekly basis to evaluate the situation and to plan our next steps.

As more information becomes available to us, we will share it with the organization as quickly as possible.
