News and Announcements
In response to the evolving situation of the COVID-19 VOCs (Variant of Concern), the Government of Ontario has adopted a more rigorous and cautious approach to implementing public health measures.
This includes the new Active Screening Requirement mentioned in previous communication as well as updated isolation requirements for household members. As such, we have updated the Arena User Guidelines, under the section Safety Protocol, to reflect the following:
If a School or Workplace has sent one of your participants/players home or identified that the participant/player must remain in isolation due to close contact of a confirmed or suspected COVID Case or a school or workplace closure, the participant/player as well as their entire household (siblings, parents, etc) CANNOT attend an extra-curricular activity in the arenas until the 14 day isolation period has ended and/or they receive a NEGATIVE COVID test result and are symptom free.
As an example of the above guideline – participants, players, siblings, parents, or other people living in the same household as students or teachers who attend Lasalle or Cyril Varney are not to attend arenas up to and including March 4th 2021.
Please let us know if you have any questions or need any clarification and that you for continuing to adhere to these important guidelines so that everyone can continue being on the ice.

RETURN TO PLAY COVID-19 UPDATE:
Please be aware that if your child is part of a stay at home order or their classes have been dismissed (presently Lasalle and Cyril Varney PS, OR ANY OTHER SCHOOL), they are not allowed on the ice, nor is anybody else within the household. (ie. siblings)
If it comes to our attention that the stay at home orders were not followed, all children in the household will be suspended for the remainder of the season.
We are asking for your cooperation in keeping our kids safe and on the ice.
Here is the information from Public Health:
Everyone in your household must stay home if anyone has COVID-19 symptoms or is waiting for test results after experiencing symptoms.
Stay home until the person with symptoms gets a negative COVID-19 test result, or is cleared by public health, or is diagnosed with another illness.
See Sudbury District Public Health Unit information here: https://www.phsd.ca/

As you have seen in the news, Ontario is reopening the economy and Sudbury will be moving into an Orange Zone on February 16th, 2021. We are preparing a safe return to hockey as we previously mentioned before. Please stand by for schedule updates coming soon. SMHA will be ready to return when the City of Greater Sudbury reopens the arenas.
It will be nice to see our players on the ice again, but please remember to follow all safety protocols in regards to COVID-19 (see photo attached). Wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands, and we will see you soon.
We will continue to update on schedule/protocols as more information is provided.
