SIHA Scottish Ice Hockey

The boards of Scottish Ice Hockey and the English Ice Hockey Association have held talks today around the ever-changing situation regarding COVID-19 – coronavirus.

As both boards mentioned in earlier statements, following the latest UK government and health agency advice, they can confirm that a full domestic fixture list will take place this coming weekend.

Anyone who is in one of the high-risk groups should not attend matches this weekend. Anyone showing any symptoms should not attend matches this weekend and consider seven-day isolation per the government advice given on Thursday.

Everyone involved in the games – players, officials, staff, spectators – should follow the advice about hand hygiene, ‘catch it, bin it, kill it’, reducing unnecessary contact with others.

The boards are mindful of the developments around the sporting world and will reconvene early next week to discuss the way forward for the remainder of the regular season and beyond.

As always, should the situation change then updates will be given via our websites and social media channels.
