Players and staff will be limited to the rink, training rink or team hotel, Seravalli reported. Seravalli added that the language in travel protocols continues to change and will continue with the contribution of provincial health authorities.
There will be no guests allowed in hotel rooms, no use of hotel gyms and no housekeeping, according to Seravalli. Players will also be allocated seats on buses and airplanes, with in-flight catering being eliminated when possible.
