COVID-19 Tier 3

Gov. Pritzker's execective order on Tuesday, November 17 moved all Illinois regions into Tier 3 mitigation measures effective Friday, November 20.

DYHA Members,

DYHA hockey practices for all teams are paused starting today, Friday, 20 Nov 2020, as the Governor of Illinois and Illinois Department of Health (IDPH) has enacted Covid-19 Phase 4, Tier 3 Mitigation measures. The DYHA Board has met and decided that we will be providing our members a prorated dues reduction for the no-practice pause period that begins Nov 20.  (Dues that were owed at the last payment date of Oct 26, and any game surcharges, are still owed and should be paid immediately.) We will provide specific details of the impact to dues for the time period Nov 20 forward ahead of our next dues payment date of Jan 8.

The Board is appreciative and thanks each of you for the efforts you have made to practice good Covid safety by wearing masks, social distancing, and ensuring players were symptom free. To date, no cases have been directly traced back to DYHA activities. We have had 5 Covid cases and 17 quarantine instances in total. Thanks again for working with us to ensure we keep our members, their families, and the commuity safe. Please remember to advise the DYHA President or Hockey Director if you have been impacted by Covid so that we can track potential exposure of our members.

Going forward, the DYHA Board will work closely with the Civic Center and Macon County Health Department on a weekly basis to evaluate when we can return to practices. We are hopeful we will be able to resume our practice season shortly. Please watch our web site and social media accounts as we will provide periodic updates on the status of our season.

Thank you for continuing to support DYHA and please contact a board member if you have any questions.
