COVID-19 Update
Submitted By Barb Esbaugh on Tuesday, September 7, 2021
The OWHA has announced the following as of September 2nd, and the Hericane Executive members will attend a meeting this Wednesday, Sept 8th with the OWHA to discuss this new requirement.  

*COVID-19 Update:

The OWHA continues to address the complexities of the Covid-19 pandemic.
 

On Sept. 1, 2021, the Government of Ontario announced its decision to require proof of full vaccination (two doses plus 14 day waiting period) for access to select indoor facilities, beginning on Sept. 22, 2021. As soon as the associated regulations are publicly available to review, OWHA will review them in relation to female hockey in Ontario. Based on the Government’s announcement, the mandatory vaccination requirements will include indoor “Facilities used for sports and fitness activities and personal fitness training, such as gyms, fitness and recreational facilities with the exception of youth recreational sport”.

 

In light of this development and of various trends, OWHA’s Board of Directors met on Thursday, September 2nd and will be requiring (subject to any additional developments in this area) that,as a condition of participation in the OWHA, players and other participants who were born before 2010 be fully vaccinated as soon as possible and by no later October 17, 2021*

Please advise us if you think this may affect your family (either as a player or as bench staff) or if you have any questions, beforeSeptember 7th.

Please contact one of the following.
