Submitted By Erin Davis on Sun 09 19, 21
The Province of Ontario announced amendments to the Reopening Ontario Act that directly impacts all members of Norwich Minor Hockey Association. Effective September 22, all spectators of any OMHA Hockey sanctioned activity - aged 12 years and over including the parents, guardians, and siblings of players, should be prepared to provide proof of vaccination to arena staff to obtain entry to the facility. 


To be clear, the September 22 rollout of the Vaccine Passport has been updated to include the areas of an indoor facility where spectators watch sports. This includes all hockey arenas in Ontario.

Along with this announcement, Ontario Minor Hockey Association has confirmed that there will be no changes to its mandatory vaccination policy for participants born in 2009 or earlier. 

This is also a reminder that participants must receive their first vaccine dose by September 17 in order to achieve full vaccination by October 31st. If a participants cannot produce their documentation confirming they are fully vaccinated by October 31st, the player will just have to suspend their hockey activity until they can show proof.

Also a reminder all other public health measures are still in effect in hockey arenas such as Norwich arena including;
-mandatory masking for both adults and children
-social distancing
-pre-screening at home prior to coming the arena and not attending if you feel ill or have any symptoms
-signing in at the door
