COVID-19 Protocols as it relates to Minor Hockey
Submitted By Jennifer McLean on Tue 02 08, 22
OMHA is following Public Health guidelines in an effort to keep our kids on the ice and playing the game they love. Lately we have had a few teams that have had to suspend playing hockey for 10 days which has generated some confusion in our membership.

Public Health guidelines have changed recently which also may have added to some confusion. The below is an overview of the guidelines and what OMHA is following and must follow in order to allow players to play hockey.  Please remember that these guidelines are subject to change as Public Health guidelines are updated.

***If anyone has any signs or symptoms of Covid-19, please have them stay home and follow Public Health guidelines. ***

 

If you player or team official tests positive for Covid-19 and has been in contact with the team within 48 hours of the onset of their symptoms, the following is to occur:

  • The player would be required to self-isolate with their immediate household for 5 days, and until your symptoms have been improving for at least 24-48 hours;
  • The player and their immediate household would then self-monitor for 5 additional days wearing tight fitted masks and being socially distant when leaving their residence;
  • The team would be required to self-monitor for 10 days wearing tight fitted masks and being socially distant when leaving their residence.
  • Due to the masks and social distant guideline, players could not play hockey.

If the team comes in close contact with another player, referee, or off ice official who had been in contact with your team within 48 hours of a positive Covid-19 test or the onset of their symptoms prior to their test results, the following is to occur:

  • The team would be required to self-monitor for 10 days from the date of the contact wearing tight fitted masks and being socially distant when leaving their residence.
  • Due to the masks and social distant guideline, players could not play hockey.

 

Reporting protocol:

Player reports to their coach/manager who will report to the Director of Risk Management with the following information:

  • Team name and age group;
  • The date of the positive test or confirmed close contact;

Orillia Minor Hockey will notify the OMHA;

The coach/manager will be provided information to share with their team;

 

Questions:

If anyone has a question, they are encouraged to contact their coach/manager who can seek any clarification through Orillia Minor Hockey.

 

Appeals / Concerns:

There is no appeal system and there should be no direct contact from parents/coaches to Ontario Minor Hockey Association or York Simcoe Minor Hockey League.

Please see the following information from the York Simcoe Minor Hockey League for further clarification.
