Clarification from the CPHO on Maximum Outdoor Gathering Limits

As per clarification from the Chief Public Health Office (CPHO) of Prince Edward Island yesterday evening, in regards to outdoor team sports, for all teams and programming, if parents/guardian are at the field/outdoor gathering watching and/or assisting their child, the player and parent/guardian will each be counted as one person so they are now considered two [2] people for the purposes of the maximum number of people permitted in an outdoor gathering.

Two weeks previously, when the PSOs previously met with the CPHO, it was communicated that for younger children, if a parent/guardian was needed at a field to assist the child, the parent/guardian and child - from the same household - would be considered, together, one (1) person for the purposes of a maximum outdoor gathering limit. However, as of yesterday evening, this has changed so that if a parent/guardian is at the field with a child, this will be considered two (2) people for the purposes of a maximum outdoor gathering (which, at this time, is currently twenty [20] people).

As such, Baseball PEI has edited our Return-to-Play guidelines: https://cdn1.sportngin.com/attachments/document/7ddd-2176706/Baseball_PEI_RTP_Guidelines__26_May_2020_.pdf#_ga=2.103150720.1656614105.1591278213-1797892258.1588611959.
