VIJHL Games Paused – Message from President Simon Morgan

Due to a recent confirmed COVID-19 case in the Nanaimo school system where several VIJHL players attend, the 4 North Division VIJHL teams have elected to pause all League games for the next 7 days effective immediately.

The 4 North team Governors are taking this measure out of an abundance of caution and to do everything that they can to help slow the spread of COVID-19. We expect this pause will help ensure the continued safety of their players and is in the best interest of their families, our fans, volunteers and our communities’ safety.

To be clear – no VIJHL player has tested positive for COVID-19 and this is a precautionary measure that will allow the VIJHL to monitor the situation and evaluate re-start activities when appropriate. We continue to take direction and advice from public health officials, viaSport BC and local recreation authorities to help determine next steps.

The 4 VIJHL games scheduled for Nov. 12, 13 and 14 have been postponed and will be rescheduled once this pause has been cancelled.

Simon Morgan
VIJHL President
