ACT Public Health Emergency extended 18 May

first_imgACT Public Health Emergency extended 18 May Minister for Health Rachel Stephen-Smith has announced a further extension of the ACT Public Health Emergency for 90 days, effective until 16 August 2021.The decision to extend the Public Health Emergency has been made based on advice provided by the ACT Health Chief Health Officer and recognises that COVID-19 poses an ongoing risk to the ACT community.The extension of the emergency declaration enables the Chief Health Officer to continue to take appropriate action, or give any direction, necessary to protect the health and safety of Canberrans.While we remain in a good position in the ACT, it is likely we will continue to see cases and clusters of COVID-19 across the country. Extending the Public Health Emergency Declaration ensures the Chief Health Officer can continue to take action in response to potential outbreaks.As more Canberrans become eligible for a COVID-19 vaccination, our focus will be on increasing capacity and improving operations for the vaccine roll out.The ACT Government will continue to work with the Commonwealth Government and other healthcare providers to ensure we can deliver a safe, effective and accessible COVID-19 vaccine program in the ACT.As restrictions continue to ease across the country and with more people travelling, we must not be complacent.We must continue to practise the COVID safe behaviours that have become so familiar to us – keep your physical distance where possible, practice good hand hygiene, stay home if you are unwell and get tested for any COVID-19 symptoms. /Public Release.

Men’s Hockey loses 2-1 in OT

first_imgMen’s Hockey loses 2-1 in OTTigers forward Chad Rau scored both of CC’s goals. Brian DeutschOctober 19, 2007Jump to CommentsShare on FacebookShare on TwitterShare via EmailPrintColorado Springs – Colorado College hadn’t swept Minnesota since December 2005, but a night after snapping a six-game losing skid to Minnesota, the Tigers started a streak of their own ñ edging the Gophers 2-1 in overtime tonight in front of a sold-out home crowd at the World Arena.“Our emphasis was coming out and competing tonight and I think we did that pretty well,” Junior forward Blake Wheeler said. “Sometimes you come up on the short end of the stick when that happens.Wheeler put the Gophers up 1-0 at the 4:24 mark of the second period when he put a back-handed rebound under freshman net-minder Richard Bachman. Senior forward Ben Gordon and sophomore forward Ryan Flynn assisted on the play.But the Tigers struck back later in the period after sophomore Brian Schack was whistled for high sticking ñ giving CC a man advantage.The Tigers were also helped when sophomore defensemen Nate Prosser caught the Gophers in the middle of a line change ñ finding forwards Scott McCulloch and Chad Rau for the 2-on-0.A last second pass from McCulloch found Rau with an open shot, and the Eden Prairie native score his first goal of the year past a sprawling Jeff Frazee in goal for Minnesota.Once again penalties plagued the both teams – __ were called over the 60 minute conflict.But just like the night before, the Tigers were the only team to take advantage of the opportunities ñ converting one their four chances. Meanwhile the Gophers were again blanked on the power-play failing to convert any of their eight opportunities in the game.Minnesota has failed to score on its last 15 power-play chances dating back to the RPI game.Frazee and Bachman both played solidly between the pipes stopping a combined 59 of 61 shots in regulation ñ including 21 shots turned away by Bachman in the third period alone.“It easily could have been 5-5 at the end of regulation, both goalies were outstandingÖ” Gophers coach Don Lucia said. “It just seemed like any time somebody got an opportunity, the goalie was there to make the save.”In the end, Minnesota resorted to simply teeing up with slap shots in hopes of beating the Tigers net-minder but to no avail as the game went into overtime.“We put close to 40 shots on the kid and he gave up one goal. We had some great scoring opportunities on him and he shut the door,” Wheeler said. “They played a great game, and he was a big part of that.”In the extra period, Colorado College played dominant hockey, out-shooting the Gophers 4-1 including the game-winning goal off the stick of Rau.The junior forward tipped in a pass from sophomore defenseman Kris Freheim to end the game and tally his second goal of the night.last_img read more
