Sports & the 2nd wave of Covid-19

 By:



Ottawa Public Health explains how the sports practice turned into a COVID-19 super spreader event.

  • - The index case was an asymptomatic person with COVID-19 who attended a team practice (they did not know they were infected)
  • - Later, other asymptomatic people with COVID-19 and one symptomatic person with COVID-19 attended practice (none knew they were infected)
  • - Masks were not consistently worn during practice
  • - People carpooled to practices with members from outside their household
  • - People mingled outside practices without proper mask use or physical distancing
  • - Many interconnections: Coaches who coached multiple teams and practices included players from different teams

Sport's practice in Ottawa led to 89 COVID-19 cases and forced hundreds to self-isolate

    This for real?! Now they want to do this?! In the middle of a freaking pandemic!? It's not even in their website!? Probably the "new management". Tells you a lot about the old management. Which btw still there lurking around. And yes I am bitter and will have nothing to do with it but for the wish they fail miserably. They have earned nothing but disrespect from soccer enthusiasts. Community engagement 101!?!?!

    Dear Members,

    In an effort to promote sanctioned soccer in the District and increase registration in our Member Clubs, the EODSA has been rolling out an EODSA Member Club Awareness Campaign on all of our social media platforms. I'm sure most of you may have seen some of these posts by now.

    If you are interested in participating and having your Club promoted by the EODSA on our social media platforms, please complete the attached template and email it back to communications@eodsa.ca as soon as possible. We can include your Club in the coming weeks.

    The campaign has been running over a number of weeks, with one Club's information and photos being featured/ promoted per week. We are sharing these Club snapshots on all of our social media platforms (Facebook: @easternontariosoccer, Instagram: @easternontariosoccer and Twitter: @eodsa77). It would be great if you could interact with our posts and share them with your social media following as well.

    If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us!

  4. Exactly. Agreed and would add; it or they aren't a big deal anymore. Not worth the effort or the biased judgmental $$$anctions.
