Good Morning:

Attached you will find the direction from Softball BC regarding the new PHO as of November 19th, 2020. (click here for attached document)

Below is the information sent to us from Softball BC on November 20th, 2020. You will note that we have received the definition that TEAMS are prohibited from travelling out of their community to another, but, we have not received clarity on INDIVIDUALS as yet. We will update you as soon as we received this information.

The provincial government has updated their website for restrictions brought into effect by the PHO (Provincial Health Office) as of midnight, November 19th
The wording for travel restrictions for athletic activities has been updated to communities, so it now reads:

Travel for athletic activities
Travel to, from and between communities for athletic activities like games, competitions, training and practice is prohibited under this order. For example:
• A team from Abbotsford cannot attend a training session in Chilliwack
• A team from Victoria cannot attend a practice in Richmond

We are still waiting on clarity for individuals who are part of a team, but live in a different community, however teams are prohibited from travelling out of their community to another for practice as of today, currently, until midnight, Monday, December 7th, 2020.

Thanks
Rick Benson
