RHRA strongly recommends that everyone eligible to be vaccinated is fully vaccinated prior to participation in any RHRA activities. This is in line with the recommendations from the Ontario Ministry of Health that everyone who is eligible to be vaccinated, receives the approved number of doses to be considered fully vaccinated.
As communicated on April 22, 2022, and until further notice, vaccination from COVID-19 is not required to participate in RHRA activities.
Please note that any participant who is not fully vaccinated and has registered or chooses to register with RHRA must understand that, if mandatory vaccinations return by either Government, Ringette Ontario, or RHRA decision, they will be no longer eligible to participate. Participants who are not fully vaccinated and register to participate, do so at their own risk.
Should circumstances regarding COVID-19 evolve and dictate a change in our policy, RHRA will revisit this policy accordingly.
RHRA’s goal is to keep players active and ensure teams remain healthy enough to continue play through the season. As a result, RHRA highly recommends participants to wear a well-fitted mask that covers nose and chin while in a dressing room or other enclosed environments where the participants are in close contact with each other.
RHRA will continue to monitor and assess the conditions and will amend recommendations accordingly.
