Emergency Action Plan

Covid Emergency Action Plan

Overview:

Perpetual Motion has developed an Emergency Action Plan in the case that a player or staff test positive and ensure the infected person(s) is removed and receives immediate care from health professionals.

In the event of a person tests positive please contact Dave Kelly  519.222.0095  dave@perpetualmotion.org

We will contact the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health Board to notify them of a positive case and communicate to the players by following their guidance.

 

Protocols:

We have certain measures in place to ensure the safety of everyone playing in the league, and protect the employees at Perpetual Motion as well. 

  1. Each team is to denote a team captain that will keep track of attendance every week to ensure that we have a list of who played that night.
  2. The attendance log functions as a screening checklist, as you must pass the Self-Screening Checklist to participate. If you do not pass the checklist, you will be asked to not participate and leave the premises.
  3. Each team captain will gather the emails and phone numbers at the beginning of the season to be able to contact one another, as well as giving us the means to contact all the players if there is a positive test within the league.
  4. If a player feels ill during a game, please remove the player from the game immediately and isolate them from the players. If it's an emergency please call 911

 

Who to Call:

As previously mentioned, Dave Kelly is the first person to call in the case of a COVID-19 related incident. Dave Kelly must be contacted when one of the following occurs:

  • A participant shows any symptoms of COVID-19
  • A participant receives a positive COVID-19 test
  • A participant was exposed to someone who tested positive for COVID-19 in the last 14 days
  • A participant was in close contact with someone that showed symptoms of COVID-19 in the last 14 days

 

When to Stay Home:

Part of being a responsible player is keeping your teammates and opponents as safe as possible during this time. There are a few instances where one must assess the situation themselves and decide whether or not it is safe to participate. You are advised to stay home if any of the following scenarios describe your situation:

  • Pending a COVID-19 test result
  • Feeling sick and/or showing symptoms of COVID-19
  • Immediate contact with someone else pending a COVID-19 test result
  • Public health has advised you to quarantine
  • In close contact with a friend or family member displaying symptoms of COVID-19

If someone is asked to or decides to leave due to suspected illness, there are several protocols in place that must be followed in order to maintain the safety of all the players. If a player feels too sick to participate, they must immediately leave the field/court and go home. If the player feels too sick to drive or find their own way home, a Team Captain must call an emergency line and notify them that there is a potential COVID-19 case on scene. Other players that had close contact with this individual are required to leave as well, and must self-isolate until they receive a negative COVID-19 test or quarantine for 14 days.

After all the players who may be at risk have left the field, all equipment used must be disinfected and stored away for future use, and teams must find other equipment to use for the remainder of the game. Regardless of COVID-19 related incidents, equipment must be cleaned and disinfected before and after every game. 

Please do your part in keeping everyone safe, self-screen before each game, sanitize before and after play, wear a mask and practice good hygiene.  Let's play safely.
