OMHA COVID-19 Vaccination Policy Update
The OMHA held a Board of
Directors meeting this weekend. Included in the meeting agenda was a discussion
around the Government of Ontario’s Proof of Vaccination requirement and
exemption relating to youth under 18 years of age actively participating in
indoor organized sport as it applies to training, practices, games and
competitions. The Ontario government considers its regulations to be a baseline
and allows organizations and businesses to supplement with further measures to
ensure the health and safety of participants.The Board was pleased to welcome Dr. Kieran Moore, Chief Medical Officer of Health for Ontario as a guest to the meeting. Dr. Moore provided important information regarding indoor sports with a high risk of transmission, such as hockey.
In addition, Dr. Moore and his office have offered support to the OMHA to continue to provide ongoing education and direction as we continue to navigate this evolving pandemic.
The OMHA's Board of Directors have reaffirmed their commitment to provide the safest environment possible for our participants, to minimize the spread of COVID-19 and to mitigate further restrictions and disruption to programming.
The OMHA Vaccination Policy will remain in place without any changes.
We thank you for your commitment to all participants and we celebrate your efforts to allow players to return to play safely.
