Re: Amended Vaccine Policy
The NOHA Board of Directors met to discuss the current vaccine policy for participants within the NOHA.
The NOHA reviewed relevant health information and direction from the Government of Ontario, coupled with legal advice specifically as it relates to the mandating of vaccination of all participants in the NOHA.
After careful consideration of all factors, the NOHA Executive has supported an amendment to the NOHA Vaccine Policy.
- The NOHA will continue to recommend that Participants between the ages of 12 to 17 (2004 and younger) receive a complete series of a mRNA COVID-19 vaccine;
- It will continue to be a requirement that all NOHA Participants (Team Officials, Volunteers, Officials, Players) aged 18 – born in 2003 or earlier – and above shall be completely vaccinated as of October 31, 2021.
The NOHA will continue to review applicable information, and reserves the right to amend this policy in response to any new guidance received from or regulations passed by federal, provincial, and local public health and governmental authorities in respect to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please note that the complete revision of the policy will be provided as soon as possible. Should you have any questions, please contact your District Council Director.
