The Kootenay International Junior Hockey League has provided an update regarding the positive COVID-19 test result by a member of the Kimberley Dynamiters on Friday, October 30th.
The Interior Health Authority subsequently completed the process of contact tracing and recommended that a total of nine members of the Dynamiters organization self isolate for 14 days. The Dynamiters have followed this guidance, and the quarantine period for those individuals will end on Wednesday, November 11th.
At this time, no additional Dynamiters players or staff have experienced COVID-19 symptoms or tested positive for the virus. However, out of an abundance of caution, the Dynamiters’ final exhibition game scheduled against the Fernie Ghostriders on Friday, November 6th has been cancelled.
The KIJHL will provide an update once additional information becomes available.
