COVID 19 Update Regarding

AMH Association Members,

As you may have heard, Wellington Dufferin Guelph Public Health jurisdiction has been placed into RED Status, these changes will take effect as of Monday December 14, 2020 at 12:01am.  The one especially important change is that Team sports must not be practiced or played except for training (no games or scrimmage).

So, going forward until we are told otherwise we will continue to practice on the new schedule and run dri
lls however, there will be no scrimmage, in house game or away games allowed after Dec 13, 2020.

Please remember to use the Screening Questionnaire for COVID before entering the arena. Everyone entering the building needs to use this screening tool.  It is extremely important to go over this each time you come to the arena. Posters are now posted at the arena entrance.

If you are feeling unwell or have been around someone who is unwell please DO NOT come to the arena. Please refer to our return to play document for direction to return to hockey if you have been unwell, or if you have had to test for COVID.

Only One (1) parent/guardian may be in the facility while we are in RED Status. This means no more siblings allowed to be there waiting, we are allowed only 10 Players & Coaching staff on the Ice and only One parent/guardian in stands for those players under the age of 18.
