Southwestern Public Health Moves to Orange Status
Submitted By Mark Holmes on Saturday, November 21, 2020
As a result of the increases in cases within the Southwestern Public Health and the fact that people are not following the provincial mandates to social distance and wear masks, the Province of Ontario has move the Southwestern Public Health to an Orange status. 

So what does that mean for our players and families?

Commencing Monday November 23, 2020, the following changes will apply.

Sports and recreational fitness facilities

  • Maintain 2 metre physical distancing, unless engaged in a sport
  • Maximum of 50 people total in areas with weights and exercise machines and all classes (revoke OCMOH approved plan)
  • No spectators permitted (exemption for parent and guardian supervision of children)
  • Team sports must not be practiced or played except for training (no games or scrimmage)
  • Team or individual sports must be modified to avoid physical contact; 50 people per league
  • Exemption for high performance athletes and parasports
  • Patrons may only be in the facility for 90 minutes except if engaging in a sport
  • Limit volume of music to be low enough that a normal conversation is possible; measures to prevent shouting by both instructors and members of the public
  • Face coverings required except when exercising
  • Increase spacing between patrons to 3 metres in areas where there are weights or exercise equipment and in exercise and fitness classes
  • Require contact information for all members of the public that entre the facility
  • Require reservation for entry; one reservation for teams

Coaches have been notified that we can no longer scrimmage or play games and the schedule will reflect that soon with games changed to practices.

On behalf of the AMHA, thank you for your understanding. We all need to do our part if we are to continue to have ice time privileges.
