Vaccination Information

Wolverines Membership,

We received the message below from the OWHA Board of Directors. The September 8th Members' Meeting referenced in the message is for association executives only. The Wolverines will have representatives at this meeting and we will send out updated information following the meeting. We recognize this announcement raises a number of questions, but this is all we know at this point - you can expect further information next week.

"On Sept. 1, 2021, the Government of Ontario announced its decision to require proof of full vaccination (two doses plus 14 day waiting period) for access to select indoor facilities, beginning on Sept. 22, 2021. As soon as the associated regulations are publicly available to review, OWHA will review them in relation to female hockey in Ontario. Based on the Government’s announcement, the mandatory vaccination requirements will include indoor 'Facilities used for sports and fitness activities and personal fitness training, such as gyms, fitness and recreational facilities with the exception of youth recreational sport'.

In light of this development and of various trends, OWHA’s Board of Directors met on Thursday, September 2nd and will be requiring (subject to any additional developments in this area) that, as a condition of participation in the OWHA, players and other participants who were born before 2010 be fully vaccinated as soon as possible and by no later October 17, 2021.

We will be having a Member’s web call on Wednesday, September 8th to provide more details as well as a general update."

WGHA wanted to get this information to our membership in a timely fashion and we will continue to send forward any information as we get it.
