OWHA Vaccine Mandate
Late last night the Ontario Women's Hockey Association (OWHA) released the following statement mandating vaccinations in players, coaches, staff and volunteers.
"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."
Please understand that this is out of our control as we must abide by our governing organization, the OWHA.
If your player falls within the mandatory vaccination group, please forward their proof of vaccination as soon as possible to email@example.com if you have not already done so.
If your player falls within the mandatory vaccination group and is not vaccinated or does not plan on becoming vaccinated by the deadline, please contact me as soon as possible.
