Ringette Ontario Vaccination Policy Update
On February 14, the Ontario government, in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, announced the next phase of measures being eased over the coming weeks.
Among the restrictions that were eased as of February 17, 2022, include the following areas that impact indoor recreational facilities:
• Removing capacity limits in the following indoor public settings where proof of vaccination is required, including but not limited to:

o Allowing50percentoftheusualseatingcapacityatsports arenas
The next phase is scheduled for March 1, 2022, and includes the proof of vaccination requirements lifted, with businesses being allowed to implement them voluntarily.
Ringette Ontario’s priority continues to be the health and safety of our ringette community which includes all players, coaches, officials, volunteers, staff, and families. With the 2021-2022 season coming to a close, the current Ringette Ontario Vaccination Policy will stay in place for the remainder of the season. The Ringette Ontario Vaccination Policy states that all participants within ringette that are ages 12 and up must be fully vaccinated to take part in any Ringette Ontario programming.
The current Vaccination policy will be further discussed by the Ringette Ontario Board of Directors at the end of March in preparation for Spring tryouts commencing in late April in some regions.
Any questions can be directed to the Ringette Ontario Acting Executive Director, Karla Xavier at firstname.lastname@example.org.
