Update on Entering Arenas
The Municipality has provided an update on what to expect when entering our arenas on Monday, January 31. ***The main change is that you have to visit a website and do screening before entering the arena,  Coronavirus (COVID-19) self-assessment (ontario.ca)   

***Also, LSMHA no longer needs to have a volunteer at the door each ice time. 

These updates are based on guidance from Lambton Public Health.  Highlights are below:

Enhanced Vaccine Certificate
-        Enhanced vaccine certificates containing QR codes are required for entry. Certificates can be either digital (e.g., screen shot on cell phone), or a paper copy. 
-        To download your digital or print QR code, please visit covid-19.ontario.ca/get-proof. Individuals can also visit their local library or call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900 to have their vaccine certificate mailed to them. You can also visit a Service Ontario centre to receive a printed copy.
-        To be clear, entry will not be permitted without the enhanced vaccine certificate.
-        ID is still required. 

Contact Tracing
-        Contract Tracing is no longer required under the new legislation. 

Active Screening
-        Active Screening is still required, however this is no longer the responsibility of the user group.
-        Patrons will be required to complete the provincial screening tool prior to entering the facility:  Coronavirus (COVID-19) self-assessment (ontario.ca) The facilities will have signage with a QR code to this website on the facility doors.
-        Patrons MUST show a screen shot of their result to the door monitor .
-        If the patron does not have a smart phone or cannot access the website, we will have a printed copy of the questions that they can read and attest to upon entry. 
-        The process will be communicated on the Municipal website and through social media.  Please help us in sharing this message to your members in advance of attending the facility.
-        Please note that the screening will be required each day, and must be completed for all persons attending the facility.

Thank you all for your continued patience.
