Hello Members

Please select the following link for the OMHA Programming Update Following Government Announcement.

https://www.omha.net/news_article/show/1200932


Happy holidays everyone!

We encourage everyone to check with your Association regarding any cancellations of upcoming practices, games or tournaments or the resumption of programming following the holiday break.
  
Following the Government of Ontario’s announcement on December 30th to update its Public Health Measures and Guidance in Response to Omicron, the OMHA is providing clarification on how that will impact upcoming programming and the procedure following a positive COVID-19 test.
 
The Children’s Health Coalition – representing Ontario’s children’s hospitals, mental health agencies and rehabilitation centres – has emphasized that in-person education is critical to the mental health, development and well-being of children and youth. The OMHA believes that these benefits are echoed in sport and recreation.
 
Throughout this pandemic, the OMHA has followed the direction of Public Health Ontario and regional Public Health Units. As of this most recent announcement, there are no restrictions limiting programming that are coming from the Government. However, the limits on spectator capacity have been further updated, restricting arenas to 50% capacity but with a maximum of 1000 people, whichever is less.
 
In addition, individuals who are vaccinated, as well as children under 12 who have symptoms of COVID-19 will be required to isolate for five days following the onset of symptoms. These individuals can end isolation after five days if their symptoms are improving for at least 24 hours, and all public health and safety measures, such as masking and physical distancing, are followed.
 
Individuals who are unvaccinated, partially vaccinated or immunocompromised will be required to isolate for 10 days.
 
Restrictions may continue to be implemented by regional public health and municipalities/facilities. We will continue to communicate updates with our Associations and participants as they become available.
