Updated OMHA Vaccination Policy + Plattsville Arena Protocols
Submitted By Tina Balfour on Sunday, September 12, 2021
Here is the updated OMHA Vaccination Policy - it now contains the procedure that can be used to apply for an accommodation exemption to the vaccination requirement;  all players, coaches, officials, and volunteers must be fully vaccinated against Covid-19 by October 31 unless they have an accommodation exemption approved by OMHA.

Plattsville Arena Protocols:

We have been informed that, to start the season, our arena will have the following policies in place:
  • limit capacity within the facility by allowing one parent/spectator per player; when necessary, player siblings are allowed but must remain with the parent at all times
  • everyone entering the facility must wear a mask covering mouth & nose at all times, the only exception being for players from the time they leave the change room to enter the ice surface until the time they return to the change room
  • change rooms will be available to use, limited to 15 players; players are encouraged to arrive at the arena already dressed in equipment, especially for the younger age divisions
  • players are asked to bring their own water bottles, filled at home
  • access to the building is only through the main front doors; follow traffic flow indicators and exit through the east doors
  • maintain physical distancing while in the building; spectators sit in the designated spots in the stands during their player's ice time (not the lobby)
  • active contact tracing/screening will be completed at the front doors upon entrance to the building

We are waiting for confirmation as to whether the recent announcement by the Ontario government will apply to minor hockey activities at the arena (which could require everyone entering the building to show proof of vaccination, as of Sept. 22).

Any updates to the policies will be provided as they become available.  PDMHA appreciates everyone's cooperation in following the protocols as we start the 2021-22 hockey season - let's all stay safe, healthy, and keep the kids on the ice!
