On Friday January 7, 2022, the Manitoba Government announced that the current Public Health Orders that took effect on Tuesday December 21, 2021 at 12:01 a.m. would be extended until Tuesday February 1, 2022 at 12:01 a.m.
Indoor and outdoor sporting and recreation capacity is reduced to a maximum of 50 per cent for spectators or 250 persons, whichever is lesser.
While games and practices can continue, tournaments sanctioned by Hockey Manitoba are not allowed under the current public health orders.
Proof of at least one dose of the Pfizer BioNTech or Moderna vaccine for COVID-19 or a recent (within 72 hours) negative Rapid Antigen Test result will be required for 12 to 17 year olds for indoor and recreational sports. This public health order took effect on Monday, December 6, 2021 at 12:01 a.m.
Negative tests need to come from a participating pharmacy as provincial testing sites should only be accessed by symptomatic individuals, or those who are required to take a PCR test by public health.
Proof of a single dose of vaccination will require a printout or web view of the individual’s government-issued immunization record as well as government-issued identification (driver’s license, provincial health card, social insurance number, birth certificate, passport) or a school ID card to verify the student’s identity.
Please note: There is no testing option for members 18 years of age and older. All members 18 years of age and older must present evidence demonstrating that they have received the completed series of an accepted COVID-19 vaccine to enter all indoor recreational facilities in Manitoba. Children 11 and under will be able to attend events and activities as per usual.
Hockey Manitoba recognizes that our members have questions and concerns about the new Public Health Orders. Our organization is committed to providing the most up-to-date and relevant information for our members and we will remain in contact with Provincial Health and Sport Manitoba and will disseminate new information promptly.
Hockey Manitoba will comply with the Manitoba Human Rights Code (MHRC) and accept accommodations that have been provided by the provincial government. Any members seeking a medical or religious accommodation must do so through an application to the provincial government.
Hockey Manitoba recognizes the important role the game of hockey plays in the lives of countless Manitobans therefore, we are eager to resume play, however the health and safety of all participants must remain the number one priority.
Please note that the resumption of play may not be linear as increasing restrictions may be required in response to fluctuating numbers of COVID – 19 cases in the province. As a result, our RTP plan will remain fluid and flexible to accommodate the necessary response to the changes in advice from the Provincial Health professionals.
As new information becomes available, we will make sure our Members and the hockey community are informed.
