EECC Changes Policy effective Today (Dec 2nd, 2021) to reflect a 50 % Occupancy Requirement
The EECC has made changes to some of its policies to reflect the new mandates imposed by the Southwestern Public Health Unit on some municipalities which include both Aylmer and Malahide.

Effective today:

There is a 50 percent occupancy limit for the EECC. Thus, the EECC has notified the AMHA that there will be limits on how many spectators can be in the building. 

The EECC is recommending one guardian be present in the building while your child is on the ice.

If siblings need to be present with the guardian, they should not be running around the complex unsupervised. 

Players should not enter the building until approximately 30 min before their ice time, and they need to exit within 30 min after their ice time.

Please use the proper entrance and exit areas. 

Entrants are of course still subject to the EECC COVID 19 screening, and those 12+ must show proof of vaccination and a valid identification.

I have been notified that in other centres, screeners have been subject to harassments and nuisance behaviour. I have not been notified that these instances have involved our families. However, as a reminder, when you travel to other centres, you are representing your town and your association. Everyone knows that Aylmer can use all the POSITIVE publicity we can get. Please be courteous, patient and kind.

It is important to note, that the above mandates can be temporary, if we all do our part and reduce the number of infections in our communities. If your child is sick, stay home. Get tested if your child is displaying symptoms of COVID 19, and if you are asked to quarantine, please do so. Notify the AMHA as soon as you have any suspicions so that we can rectify the situation and error on the side of caution.

We have had two teams cancel games recently, because they do not want to come into our town. We had teams from a St. Thomas Panthers tournament request not to play in the town as well, and several organizations have emailed to ensure we are doing all we can to keep their kids safe. It is important that we do all we can to maintain public safety for all.

Happy December to you all!!!
