There will be NO club training this week. Due to the fact that club members may have been exposed to a COVID positive person at a local bar recently, we have decided to suspend practice. Although we would all love to be on the pitch, postponing practice is a protective measure against the potential spread of the disease and we continue to monitor the situation.
If you have been to a bar recently, Santé Montréal and your R2R task force strongly suggest that you get tested.
The R2R task force will meet again on Monday July 20th, after 14 days have passed to discuss the potential return to training. We aim to restart practices as soon as we have more information and can be sure that we are safe.
In the meantime, we highly recommend respecting the health guidelines of social distance, wearing masks, washing your hands frequently and following good respiratory hygiene practices (e.g., cover your mouth and nose when coughing or sneezing (elbow, upper arm or disposable paper tissue). Furthermore:
IF YOU HAVE SYMPTOMS
Call the coronavirus hotline (1-877-644-4545) to be directed to the appropriate resources.
Contact the SABRFC COVID managers, Sommer Christie and Dr. Roy Dudley, to update us on your current status.

IF YOU DON’T HAVE SYMPTOMS but have potentially been in contact with a confirmed case
SELF-ISOLATE for 14 days: Symptoms develop on average from 5 to 7 days after contamination, but may appear over a 2 to 12 day period of time. Some people with no apparent symptoms or whose symptoms have not yet developed may unknowingly spread the virus therefore at least 14 days of isolation is recommended (Government of Quebec).
Continuously monitor your symptoms and call the coronavirus hotline if you have concerns.

Since there will be no training, this week is the perfect time to bump up our ONECLUB Strava stats and WIN THE 2020 CUP! Marty & Marge’s scientific calculation suggests that if we all run/walk 8k per day that there will be no catching us!! If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
