The League office received notice this morning that one member of the Surrey Eagles has tested positive for COVID-19. We immediately reached out to our Provincial Health Office (PHO) for direction as per our accepted plan and they have responded that Fraser Health will contact the team.
At this point, the athlete has been placed in a 14-day quarantine and all other players and team personnel have been tested and we are awaiting results.
Meanwhile, in the interest of caution, the exhibition game this afternoon between the Eagles and the Langley Rivermen has been postponed.
We have also postponed the Coquitlam Express vs. Chilliwack Chiefs exhibition game that was scheduled for tonight, while we await further direction from Fraser Health.
With regard to any media inquiries, please reach out to Jesse Adamson at the BCHL email@example.com.
