Remember that good juju I talked about? Good job, PUL!
The player from the early game on March 12 at the Spiplex has tested negative.
That’s a HUGE shoutout to our Public Health Unit for getting those results so quickly.
Sorry for the fright everyone, but I’d rather it went from alarms to relief than the other way round. Let this be a reminder to us all of how serious this situation is. Take your precautions and stay healthy.
One of our players, who played the early game in the Spiplex on March 12, has been tested for COVID-19. The player was asymptomatic at the time, but has since displayed mild symptoms. The results of this test are pending and should be available in about three days.
We contacted all Thursday players last night (Mar 18), and sent a league-wide email this morning (Mar 19) with a bit more follow up information. Check your spam or junk folders if you did not receive it.
If you still cannot find it, I have posted the full text of both emails here. I have no new information to add at this time.
I’m fielding questions (email@example.com) if you have any, but once you’ve read the emails above, you have pretty much everything I know.
We’ll keep posting info as we get it, including the results, positive or negative, of our player’s test.
Fortunately, we were the last booking in the Spiplex, as all March Break events were cancelled, so no other groups should be affected.
In light of recent announcements from various associations, leagues and event organizers in our area and across Canada, PUL is hereby suspending all programsfor a period of three weeks, starting Friday March 13th.*
This aligns with the Government of Ontario’s decision this afternoon to close all publicly funded schools until April 6th.
This suspension includes all indoor games, clinics and the Junior Information Session. Games scheduled for today (March 12) go ahead as planned.
Throughout this period, we will continue to monitor the status of the COVID-19 pandemic and take direction from local, provincial, federal and global health organizations regarding whether or not it is safe and responsible for PUL programs to resume at the beginning of April.
PUL prides itself on being socially conscious, and this is just another way that we can do our part.
Thank you for your support and understanding.
The PUL Executive.
* Note that this does NOT cover events that are explicitly PUL organized, such as:
– this weekend’s 4v4 tournament (organized by The Ultimate Experience)
– the March 21 4v4 (organized by Trent Ultimate). We’ll reach out to each of these, and encourage them to be in touch.
– the clinic with Ultimate Rob on March 29 is PUL organized, and is therefore going to be rescheduled…we’ll be in touch with those who have signed up
