QR Codes requirement
If you are not already aware, as of January 4th 2022, the arena will no longer be allowed to accept the word document proof of vaccination. The Ontario Government has mandated that QR codes are the only acceptable proof of vaccination going forward. 

This is being implemented to help eliminate the use of fraudulent word documents.  The security staff at the arena will have a scanner to read the codes on your way into the facility.  We would also like to remind you that no food or drink is allowed inside the arena.

The Children’s Health Coalition – representing Ontario’s children’s hospitals, mental health agencies and rehabilitation centres – has emphasized that in-person education is critical to the mental health, development and well-being of children and youth. The OMHA believes that these benefits are echoed in sport and recreation. Throughout this pandemic, the OMHA/OWHA 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. 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 when they become available. We encourage everyone to keep checking the OMHA website, social media channels and your local Association websites. 

Please be respectful of these changes and patient with arena staff and security as these new procedures are put in place next week.

Thank you and Happy New Year!
