Update – Protected environment event in Chicoutimi

Chicoutimi, QC – Following yesterday’s announcement of a positive COVID-19 case among the Victoriaville Tigres’ players, the Quebec Major Junior Hockey League announced an update on the protected environment event in Chicoutimi.
After another wave of COVID-19 testing of Tigres’ players and staff yesterday morning, a total of four active cases have been diagnosed. As announced in a press release late yesterday, the players and staff have now been placed in isolation for a period of 14 days.

The League also announced that the Chicoutimi Saguenéens, who played the Tigres twice last weekend, have now been placed in isolation for 14 days. However, this is done as a preventive measure since no positive cases have been identified at this point among players and staff.

Schedule changes

Game #151, Val-d’Or at Gatineau, originally scheduled for February 7, is now scheduled tonight, February 3, at 7pm ET.

All the other games scheduled in the protected environment event in Chicoutimi are postponed. The event ends tonight with Game 151.
