Joint Message From Youth Sports in Prince Edward County
Submitted By Pres on Sunday, March 22, 2020
Dear PEC community,

As sport leaders in Prince Edward County, we feel a responsibility to help keep our kids and our community safe and help support our health care workers. We have come together in solidarity to ask that all of our players and their families heed the advice of the World Health Organization and Theresa Tam, Chief Public Health Officer of Canada:

- Stay home as much as possible
- Get fresh air, go for a jog or walk your dog but always keep two meters distance from other people
- Go to the grocery store or pharmacy as needed but keep the two-metre distance and wash your hands upon your return home. Shopping online and arranging to have things dropped off at your home is even better.
- Avoid non-essential gatherings. That means no visits with your neighbours or friends, no play dates, no sleepovers, no parties and especially no public gatherings.

The ability to work together as a team is one of the greatest lessons of sport. Now, more than ever, we need to come together and work as a team to help our healthcare system deal with the spread of COVID 19.

Our natural inclination may be to relax our social distancing as time goes on, however we are urging you to stay vigilant. Our doctors, nurses, radiologists and other front line healthcare workers are always there for us when we need them. Through our actions, let’s show them that we are here for them now.

Yours in sport,
