We just received the following update from the Ontario Women's Hockey Association (OWHA). The Orangeville Girls Hockey Association is governed by the OWHA and must follow all policies.
Attention OWHA Members,
On Monday, September 27, 2021, the OWHA met with Dr. Kieran Moore, Chief Medical Officer of Health for the Province of Ontario. Pursuant to this meeting, effective immediately, it is mandatory, as a condition of eligibility to participate in any OWHA-sanctioned activity, that everyone born in 2009 and earlier must be fully vaccinated (2 shots plus 14 days) as soon as possible and by no later than November 1, 2021. This includes all players, staff and volunteers, including coaches, trainers and officials. The only exemption from this requirement is for two specific medical reasons.
The full policy reflecting these rules will be posted shortly on OWHA’s website.
