Memo: Coronavirus Update (COVID-19)

Since the announcement of March 13, 2020 concerning the cancellation of all sanctioned soccer activities, without exception, the situation of COVID-19 has once again rapidly changed.

This situation creates a lot of uncertainty about the start of the outdoor season and the holding of several events.

The situation is not easy, especially for children who feel anxious, or who find the time long. It will be necessary to grasp this unprecedented situation to make it a life lesson, to build the resilience of our community and your young people, and to develop their flexibility and creativity.

Soccer New Brunswick is able to confirm the following for the time being:

  • Cancellation of March ACT tournament.
  • Cancellation of the provincial indoor championship (April 4-5).
  • Reschedule the NB Teams April camps (scheduled for 11, 12 and 18, 19) for the month of May (May 2,3 and 9, 10).
  • Cancellation of team trips until further notice.
  • Reschedule training camps of excellence.
  • Reprogram the various courses and workshops for coaches and referees to online delivery.

Decisions regarding other upcoming competitions and events will come in due course according to new government recommendations. For any questions relating to your regional or club activities, we invite you to contact your club or league directly.

The whole Soccer New Brunswick team continues to work on different attack plans according to different scenarios in order to prepare for the possible start of the season and minimize the impacts of this exceptional situation.

We invite you to consult our social networks and our website to keep up to date with the latest developments.

Memo: Coronavirus Update (COVID-19)

Moncton, March 10, 2020 – Soccer New Brunswick would like to inform all parents and athletes about the precautions regarding the advancement of Coronavirus (COVID-19).

The current overall risk to New Brunswickers is still considered low by medical experts. The risk to Canadian travellers abroad is generally low but will vary depending on the destination. The Public Health Agency of Canada is closely monitoring the spread of COVID-19 in other countries.

For returning travellers:

Anyone who has traveled internationally in the last 14 days should self-monitor for two weeks from when they arrived back in Canada. Individual risk will vary depending on the destination. People arriving from Iran or the Chinese province of Hubei will need to stay at home regardless of symptoms. Symptoms such as fever, cough, difficulty breathing may take up to 14 days to appear.

If you have travelled outside Canada, it is important to monitor your health when you return to Canada. While abroad, you may have come in contact with the novel coronavirus. PHAC asks that you monitor your health for fever, cough and difficulty breathing for 14 days after you arrive in Canada. If you have these symptoms, call the public health authority in the province or territory you are in to inform them. They will provide advice on what you should do.

Should an individual who has recently traveled outside the country experience non-specific symptoms (such as headache, congestion, achiness, feeling unwell) they should separate themselves from others and stay home to monitor themselves further.

Should these symptoms progress to include fever or cough, the individual should:

  • continue to stay at home
  • immediately call Tele-Care 811
  • describe symptoms and travel history
  • follow instructions carefully

Hygiene:

Proper hygiene can help reduce the risk of infection or spreading infection to others:

  • wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, especially after using the washroom and when preparing food
    • use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available
  • when coughing or sneezing:
    • cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm, not your hand
    • dispose of any tissues you have used as soon as possible in a lined waste basket and wash your hands afterwards
  • avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands
  • clean the following high-touch surfaces frequently with regular household cleaners or diluted bleach (1 part bleach to 9 parts water):
    • toys
    • toilets
    • phones
    • electronics
    • door handles
    • bedside tables
    • television remotes

Active travel health notices:

There are several active travel health notices for COVID-19. Each country or area may have different levels of risk. These risk levels may change as the COVID-19 event evolves internationally.

Before you leave, check the following destinations that have travel health notices for COVID-19:

About soccer:

Soccer New Brunswick is asking its members to temporarily suspend match protocols which involve handshake between coaches, referees and captains at the start of the match and between players at the end of the match.

Soccer New Brunswick would also have players, coaches and referees not to share their water bottle. Coughing or sneezing in your elbow is also a gesture deemed essential to respect all the time.

Personnel carrying team equipment (bottles, clothing, etc.) are also advised to wear gloves.
