Return to play protocol - PENDING
Submitted By Mark Holmes on Saturday, February 13, 2021
The Ontario Government has decided to assign a RED status to the Southwestern Public Health Region. What does that mean for AMHA and what are the implications?

Firstly, thank you all for remaining patient over the past two months. The AMHA board, along with our members, has been eagerly awaiting the re-opening plans of the government. Fortunately for our members, moving into RED status does allow for AMHA to provide programming. Unfortunately, it also means that programming plans will need to be modified to work within the guidelines.

The AMHA board is meeting this week and discussions regarding restart plans will take place.

Of course, all of this depends on one big issue. The EECC indicated their break even point for cost during the shut down was 25 days. When the lock down was extended, in an effort to be fiscally responsible, the ice was taken out. The town indicated however, that the intention was to put the ice back in, as normally, the one ice surface would remain in for the summer. At this time, it has not yet been decided if the ice will go back in.

The AMHA contacted both the EECC and a member of the Town of Aylmer's Emergency Control Group yesterday, to inquire about the ice being put back in. We expect a decision to be offered early next week. 

What we need from our members in preparation for any return to play is the following.

1. For those that have paid for registration past the New Year and are NOT interested in returning, please contact Leon Thoonen at [email protected] asap.

2. If you had not paid your fees past New Year, but ARE interested in playing, please notify Leon Thoonen at [email protected] asap.

Remember, if we return in RED, games are not permitted and any ice time would be strictly development skill based. If we end up moving to ORANGE, then games are again permitted, but when or if that is a possibility is not predictable.

Thanks again to all our members for your co-operation. Happy Family Day Weekend and Happy Valentines Day!!!
