March 9, 2020 – At 4:30 p.m. today, a conference call was held between the Little NHL Executive, host committee members from Nipissing First Nation and the City of Mississauga to discuss options related to proceeding with Little NHL 2020. All parties involved agreed that given the World Health Organization, Public Health Ontario and the Region of Peel have all determined the risk of transmission to be low, the tournament will proceed as scheduled.

“After careful consideration and review of information from Public Health Ontario and other credible health authorities, we have determined to move ahead with the tournament,” stated Marian Jacko, President of LNHL. “Nipissing First Nation has taken all reasonable precautions to inform participants and coaches about preventive measures, and the City of Mississauga will be taking additional measures with cleaning at all the public facilities,” she added.

Given there are no major concerns or cancellations of other large events in the Greater Toronto Area, the committee felt confident that this event could go forward with minimal risk. “We realize there are concerns with people bringing the virus back to their communities, but given there have been no locally transmitted cases, and the three travel-related cases in the Peel region are contained and under quarantine, we feel the risk is minimal of anyone contracting COVID-19,” said Chief Scott McLeod.
