OWHA - COVID-19 Update (September 2, 2021)
Submitted By DWGHA News on Monday, September 6, 2021
The OWHA continues to address the complexities of the COVID-19 pandemic.

On September 1, 2021, the Government of Ontario announced its decision to require proof of full vaccination (two doses plus a 14 day waiting period) for access to select indoor facilities, beginning on September 22, 2021. As soon as the associated regulations are publicly available to review, the 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 2, 2021 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.

At this time, the above information is all that has been provided by the OWHA.  The DWGHA will keep you informed as more information becomes available.
