With the developments surrounding coronavirus, PUL is focused on providing our members with information to protect themselves. We may not be a major metropolis and we have no cases reported just yet, but we can all do our part.
Please take a moment and read through these everyday actions that will help you and your fellow members remain healthy:
- We encourage all members to continue to wash their hands thoroughly and often, with soap and water, or with an alcohol-based sanitizer.
- If you are feeling unwell, we ask that you do not attend your game, clinic, tournament, or event until your symptoms clear up.
In addition to the everyday actions we can all take, we are aligning ourselves with Ultimate Canada and their recommendations. Other leagues around Canada have started doing so, and more are sure to follow.
- High-Fives and Spirit Circles: The flu and coronavirus are commonly spread through close, personal contact. Please refrain from high-fiving teammates and opponents, and avoid contact during spirit circles.
- Disc Sanitization: We ask that everyone take a few minutes before coming to an event, game or clinic and disinfect all your discs. Wash them again at the end of each day used.
- Hand Washing: Please wash your hands before and after every game.
We will continue to keep up to date with the latest developments and guidelines set out set out by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Ministry of Health-Ontario, and Ultimate Canada.
Remember, public health is a community effort and there is no community that efforts like PUL. A few simple precautions will go a long way.
And looking for a 20-second ditty to recite while you scrub those hands and discs? Try this on for size:
“Spirit of the Game is a set of principles which places the responsibility for fair play on the player. Highly competitive play is encouraged, but never at the expense of mutual respect among competitors, adherence to the agreed upon rules, or the basic joy of play. All players are responsible for knowing, administering, and adhering to the rules. “
Be safe people.
