Please see attached bulletin from Hockey Canada regarding precautions to take with Coronavirus for teams.
The Hockey Canada Safety Program recommends the following protocol as it relates to the use of water bottles:
Good team hygiene includes ensuring all players and staff have their own water bottles to prevent the transmission of viruses and bacteria.
Bottles should be labelled and washed after each practice or game.
It is further recommended that officials avoid the practice of drinking from the goaltender’s water bottle.
If officials require water during a game, we suggest they have their own water bottle at the penalty bench.
There should not be sharing of water bottles in the penalty box, as well as no sharing of towels.
Fist bump with hockey gloves on, instead of shaking hands.
