Rockies, Ghostriders, Thunder Cats battle in KIJHL exhibition

Five KIJHL games were set to be played over the weekend, but only three went forward after a member of the Kimberley Dynamiters tested positive for COVID-19.

The positive test forced the postponement of Kimberley’s two exhibition games this weekend. The KIJHL and the Dynamiters say the individual is under a 14-day quarantine and that they are following the guidance of Interior Health authorities for further testing and contact tracing.
