Updated Legion Games & Competitions Covid regulations

HI Comrades,    (as of March 4th, 2021)

Here is the latest information on what games and ticket sales are allowed within our branches, at least until the circuit breaker is over on March 14th.

What does "no games and competitions" mean?
The intention of these circuit breaker measures is to support physical activity and recreation while also putting into place additional measures to limit interactions. As such, no games or competitions means not bringing together people who are not regularly interacting with one another (e.g. week to week).

FYI, there is a new Q & A at the bottom of the circuit breaker measures page: https://www.princeedwardisland.ca/en/information/health-and-wellness/covid-19-circuit-breaker-measures-march-4-2021

The following is permitted:
- regular practices including members of a team scrimmaging among one another,
- regular partners or doubles getting together to practice such as squash, badminton, tennis, pickleball, darts
The following activities are not permitted:
- league play
- tournaments
All other circuit breaker measures must be followed as well as remaining applicable sections of the organized recreation and team sport guidance. Operational plans are required and need to be followed. If your specific scenario isn't addressed above, consider what the most similar scenario is and err on the side of caution during this time-limited period.

I hope this is helpful. If you have any questions please let me know.

Regarding  sales of Chase the Ace tickets:

Sales of tickets (e.g. Chase the Ace) fall under retail. So the retail guidance at the link below says the following:
 Retail stores, markets, and craft fairs may operate at up to 50% of the standard operating capacity of the retail space, and monitor entrances and exits to ensure that capacity is not exceeded


Stay safe!
