All arena spectators aged 12+ will be subject to the Provincial Vaccination Passport rules effective Wednesday, September 22nd.
The OMHA vaccination policy.
The Province also provided more details and stated that Coaches, Officials and Volunteers would be exempt from the Vaccination Passport requirements. However, an order issued today by Rosana Salvaterra, Medical Officer of Health for Peterborough Public Health will require all eligible participants aged 18+ to be fully vaccinated after all, including Coaches, Officials and Volunteers.This will have virtually no impact on our programming.
However, as the permit holder for the ice, we are being made responsible for gathering this data from all our participants and spectators (including visiting teams and spectators) beginning on Wednesday. We are taking the steps needed to ensure our volunteers have the tools and resources required to handle this. PLEASE be patient and kind. These are not our policies, we're just required to enforce them - and there are no exceptions from the rules. Abusive language or behavior directed at our staff/volunteers will not be tolerated and could lead to facility bans.
We appreciate your cooperation. See you at the rink!
Jef Dueck, President
PMHC AAA Peterborough Petes
