The Follwoing has been received from the City of Hamilton and Alliance Hockey updating their vaccination Policy.

Yesterday the City of Hamilton released clarification on their vaccine policy, it is the following:

As per the Provincial announcement on September 1, 2021, vaccine verification will be required to access indoor sports and recreation facilities as of September 22, 2021. On September 14, 2021 further guidance was released and as such, as of September 22, 2021 you will see the following changes to accessing indoor recreation facilities:

  • Access will only be available through the facility main access. City of Hamilton staff will be responsible for verifying vaccine requirements upon entry.
  • Any players, coaches, or officials aged 18+ will be required to show proof of vaccination + ID or exemption
  • Any spectators/parents/siblings aged 12+ will be required to show proof of vaccination + ID or exemption
  • Permit holders will still be responsible for contact tracing and health screening
  • Businesses and organizations are not permitted to retain vaccine records or status, and as such patrons will be required to show their proof of vaccination each time they enter the facility

 

Vaccine verification and ID will be checked in accordance with the direction provided by the Provincial Ministry of Health. For more information:

 

Based on current information, the following will be required:

  • Proof of being full vaccinated (full series of vaccine at least 14 days before facility visit)
  • ID which shows the same name and birthdate of the individual
  • Both can be shown digitally (ie picture/PDF of documents or ID on phone)

 

We ask all members of the public to be patient if wait times are experienced and to adjust their arrival at the facility or number who are attending.

Also released yestterday was the following clarification the Allince Hockey vaccine policy:

We have received some question about the Alliance Hockey COVID Policy  https://alliancehockey.com/Pages/5413/RETURN_TO_HOCKEY_PLAN/

1.       As of today, Sept 17th, if a player/coach cannot show proof of vaccination or be in receipt of an Alliance accommodation form, they cannot participate in team activities (on or off ice). If participant refuses to provide this information he/she cannot be permitted to participate even if they have a negative COVID test. 

2.       Those who have not shown proof of vaccination  or accommodation receipt as per Alliance Hockey Policy will be deemed an Ineligible player and cannot be registered. https://alliancehockey.com/Manuals/2430/Sections/2563/40_0_Participation_of_Ineligible_Participants/

3.       All accommodation requests will be reviewed by the committee within 72 hours or receipt. The Minor Hockey Association's (MHAs) contact will be provided with a copy of the response for their records. If player states they have submitted a request but have not received reply cannot participate until they have response or proof of vaccination.

4.       If participant has an exemption receipt, they are required to show proof of negative test within 24 hours of sanctioned event (good for 72 hours FROM TIME OF TEST). Our policy gives link to Shoppers Drug Mart test sites. This is at the expense of the participant. Ongoing tests are required in order to participate in sanctioned events. 

5.       MHA will need to make arrangements to accommodate the participants who have approved accommodation (review testing). ALLIANCE hockey does not need a copy of test results. The MHA/team needs to record that it has been provided. 

 


These policies dictate how this year will currently be run until further notice from Ontario Health on down.
