The situation at the Gatineau Olympic Games has not improved. QMJHL confirmed on Monday that 13 new people in the organization were infected with COVID-19. As a result, our active cases increased from 11 to 24.
From March 31st to April 2nd, they are the last protected environmental event of the season. They are the only opponents of the Olympic Games.
As for Remparts’ final opponents, Baie-Comeau’s Drakkar and Rimouski’s Oceanic, they still have no positive reasons. However, according to the itinerant policy, they must remain in administrative isolation until April 15.
For QMJHL, the situation of the Olympic Games is obviously the most worrying.
According to the information we have provided, some Olympic athletes have been struggling with several symptoms, and some are still feeling the impact. However, none of them is dangerous.
If this is only a very minor aspect at present, QMJHL confirmed in a press release sent on Monday that the explosive increase in the number of cases, especially in the Olympics, has not compromised the goal of entering the playoffs on April 23.
However, behind the scenes, the team expressed doubts about this possibility.
Although after confirming the first positive result, everyone must undergo a 14-day mandatory quarantine-for Remparts, Océanic and Drakkar it is April 1st, for the Olympic Games and the Invincible Fleet it is April 2nd-the fact remains certain The athlete’s isolation from the outside world may exceed this period.
For asymptomatic people who test positive for COVID-19, they need to self-isolate for 10 days, retrospectively to the date of testing. However, for people with symptoms, the isolation period is ten days from the onset of illness. Once the isolation is over, they must undergo a medical examination before returning to the training ground to ensure that there are no sequelae.
Recently, some people who tested positive in QMJHL have no symptoms, but the symptoms in the next few days will force them to postpone the quarantine, causing some teams to doubt the hypothesis that the playoffs will start the next day. April 23 is realistic.
The next few days will tell us more.
