As we are well into flu season, and with the developments surrounding coronavirus, TUC is focusing on providing our members with information to protect themselves against the flu, and coronavirus. TUC leadership has and will continue to keep up to date with the latest developments and review guidelines/advice set out by the World Health Organization (WHO), the Ministry of Health-Ontario (MHO), Toronto Public Health (TPH) and Ultimate Canada, and we will continue to provide updates as necessary.
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(s), practice(s), clinic(s), or event(s) until your symptoms clear up.
In addition to the everyday actions we can all take, in alignment with Ultimate Canada, we are recommending the following precautions when you are at a TUC event, game, or clinic:
High-Fives and Spirit Circles: The flu and coronavirus are commonly spread through close, personal contact, please refrain from high-fiving teammates and avoid contact during spirit circles.
Disc Sanitization: We ask that everyone take a few minutes before coming to an event, game, clinic or practice and disinfect all your discs. Wash them again at the end of each day.
Hand Washing: Please wash your hands before and after every game.
We have provided some links below to resources from WHO (their advice to the public, including myth busters), MHO and TPH for more information about coronavirus:
