The Weyburn Minor Hockey Association has sent out a questionnaire for parents of minor hockey players to fill out prior to attending any practices or games at Crescent Point Place or the Tom Zandee Sports Arena.

The Sports Arena has hosted practices for the Gold Wings and Red Wings through September and the first part of October, and Crescent Point Place will be ready to go with their ice starting Tuesday, Oct. 13.

Minor Hockey is asking people to do a health screening questionnaire prior to entering the rink, and they are to indicate if they are a parent, volunteer or hockey official, and which player they are there to watch. At this time, only one spectator per player will be allowed in.

At the door to the rinks, the City of Weyburn has posted health screening questions related to COVID-19.

They ask that anyone who has symptoms or needs to self-isolate not attend the rink.

A person is not to enter if they have a cough, fever, sore throat, runny nose or shortness of breath; if they have been advised by a medical health officer to self-isolate; or have engaged in any activity that requires a person to self-isolate (such as travel), according to orders issued by Saskatchewan Public Health.

There has not been any word as yet about if or when hockey games may be permitted by Public Health officials.
