Just today, the SMDHU updated their guidance regarding exposures/positive cases and they changed one very important word. This is with regards to return to play only, masks are necessary off ice for all players, spectators and bench staff. They changed mask AND physically distance to mask OR physically distance. I spoke with a public health nurse and she confirmed that if the players meet all the requirements on the website (page linked below) they are able to return to play on day 6 as long as they agree to wear a mask at all times (while participating, in the changeroom, etc). If they need to drink, they will need to be at least 6 feet apart from anyone else.
