Happy New Year - OMHA update
Submitted By Executive on Saturday, January 1, 2022
Happy New Year GMHI families,

Goderich Minor Hockey continues to monitor the changing Covid-19 protocols, updates from OMHA and Public Health guidelines. 

In our efforts to keep you up-to-date on changing policies, we ask that you be patient and understand that we are updating you as we receive the information. We ask that you continue with the measures put in place (mask wearing, social distancing, etc) in order to keep our young athletes healthy and safe.

We would like to thank every member of GMHI for their efforts and here's hoping for continued success!



As of January 4th, as per Ontario regulations, the enhanced vaccine certificate with an official QR code will be required to access the Goderich-Huron YMCA for all members aged 12+.  Vaccine receipts without a QR code will no longer be accepted as valid proof of vaccination.  Government issued ID will still be required to show along with your QR code.

Here's the latest update from OMHA: 

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. (YMCA is 250 spectators) 

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. We encourage everyone to keep checking the OMHA website, social media channels and your local Association websites. 

If there are any questions, please contact [email protected]

Thank you,
Mike McBride - GMHI President
