Submitted By Mark Holmes on Monday, September 20, 2021
The OMHA had a meeting last night to address a number of questions and concerns. On the agenda was the prospect of changing the Vaccine Mandate or keeping it the same as what they had previously announced.

We appreciate how challenging a time this is for all of you as we continue to deal with the impact of COVID-19 as we return to play. We wanted to provide you the latest update with respect to the OMHA Vaccination Policy for COVID-19 and how we plan to put the health and safety of our participants first and foremost.

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.

Thus, any participant including players, coaches, volunteers, officials will need to be vaccinated in order to participate in OMHA sanctioned programming. Of course, there is a process for a medical accommodation, if someone is eligible. Please reference the OMHA policy for further information.

Should you have any questions please contact Mark Holmes at [email protected]

Reminder:
The AMHA has to keep track of who has been fully vaccinated. Therefor, if you have your 2nd dose receipt or downloaded passport, please email this to Shawn Pede at shawn[email protected]

Thank you all for your co-operation.
