OHL Suspends Remainder of Regular Season

March 12, 2020 - Ontario Hockey League (OHL) - Ottawa 67's News Release

OTTAWA - Earlier today, the Ontario Hockey League announced that it has suspended the remainder of the regular season to minimize the risk of fans, players and team personnel coming into contact with the COVID-19 virus. In so doing, the OHL has clearly stated that health and safety is the League's top priority. The Ottawa 67's fully support and endorse this position.

All fans with tickets to the three remaining regular season home games and the first round of the playoffs will be contacted directly. The situation is fluid and the team will confirm next steps in due course.

The 67's strongly suggest that all fans follow the preventative measures that have been recommended by Health Canada and other health agencies to minimize risk.

Protect yourself:

- wash hands frequently and also use hand sanitizer

- avoid touching your hands to your eyes, mouth and nose

- cough or sneeze into a tissue or the bend of your arm ... not your hand.

- do not shake hands but rather use a fist or elbow bump

- clean your own frequently touched surfaces like phones, TV remotes, door handles and toilets with household cleaners, disinfectant wipes or a solution of 9-parts water mixed with 1-part bleach

The 67's will continue to monitor health advisories and adjust our plans as required. The risk of contracting the virus in Canada and particularly in Ottawa, continues to be low and with your help, we can keep it that way.

You can find additional information about protecting yourself and your family/friends/employees, as well as regular updates, on the Ottawa Public Health website and the Ontario Ministry of Health website.
