OWHA VACCINATION POLICY IMPLEMENTATION AT COLGHA
The OWHA has invoked a vaccination policy effective immediately that applies to all Collingwood Girls Hockey Association members. The OWHA requires that all affected persons be Fully Vaccinated against COVID-19 as a condition of participation in any game, on-ice practice, off-ice training, or tournament. At present, this policy does not apply to players born after 2009 but may be subject to change at any time.
The OWHA policy can be found at: https://www.owha.on.ca/content/updates-amp-bulletins
Affected persons of this policy include:
Each affected person is required to be Fully Vaccinated (including the 14-day period after receiving their completed dose) by November 1, 2021 or earlier.
Each affected person must present evidence demonstrating they have received the completed series of an Accepted COVID-19 Vaccine by October 17, 2021 or earlier.
Acceptable evidence and documents include:
Any affected person seeking medical exemption should visit section 6 of the OWHA policy to start the request https://www.owha.on.ca/content/updates-amp-bulletins
Any completed medical exemption form should be presented to Team Trainers, Chief Referee or to the Head Trainer for verification.
Unvaccinated Affected Persons
After October 17, 2021, any Affected Person who is not Fully Vaccinated (excluding the 14-day period after receiving their completed dose) or who has not been granted an accommodation in accordance with the OWHA Policy, will no longer be eligible to participate in any Sanctioned Activities until such time as they have presented satisfactory evidence that they have been Fully Vaccinated (including the 14-day period after receiving their completed dose) or have been granted an accommodation.
