The four COVID-19 cases diagnosed in the Quebec Remparts player are from a variant that has yet to be determined.
The other two are currently asymptomatic, although one of them showed symptoms a few days ago.
Currently, the number of cases is still 4, but as Remparts discusses the possibility of retesting everyone to ensure that not only the portrait is used as a representative of the situation, but it may increase in the next few days. They further delayed their mandatory quarantine period by 14 days.
According to the policies of the Quebec Youth Hockey League (QMJHL), all players and staff of the quarantined team must be tested two days before the end of the quarantine. If the team waits until then and reports new cases, they may have to self-isolate for a longer period of time.
According to the “Daily News” report, another team currently affected by the virus, Gatineau Olympics, will also work hard to find a variant.
In the last few hours, there have been some credible rumors that QMJHL is preparing to cancel the playoffs.
On Tuesday evening, the head of communications for the Kotu Tour, Maxime Blouin, wanted to clarify the situation by denying these rumors.
The league is working with its team to find the best solution to win the President’s Cup as soon as possible. However, at present, the first priority is to ensure the health and safety of players. This is what we have been doing since the start of the season, and it allows us to play all these games,” he wrote.
On Saturday, QMJHL will announce in which cities the protected environment will be held in the first round of the playoffs. As positive cases were discovered in Remparts and Olympiques, everything was postponed.
