Lambton County to Return to Strengthened COVID-19 Response Framework
Submitted By Amanda Madere on Saturday, February 20, 2021
Lambton Public Health will be moving from the Orange-Restrict level to the Red-Control level as a result worsening public health trends in the region over the past week. These changes will come into effect on Monday, February 22, 2021 at 12:01 a.m.After returning to the Framework, public health regions are required to stay in their level for at least two weeks. The government will then assess the impact of public health and workplace safety measures to determine if the region should stay where it is or be moved to a different level. 

Public health regions may be moved to a higher level within the two-week window, if necessary, based on the set indicators and thresholds outlined in the Framework. In addition, Ontario has introduced an "emergency brake" to allow the Chief Medical Officer of Health, in consultation with the local medical officer of health, to immediately advise moving a region into Grey-Lockdown to interrupt transmission.

How this will affect the SHA and it's programs, The regulations state for Red Zone the following:

Team sports must not be practised or played within the facility, with the exception of training sessions for members of a sports team that do not include games or scrimmage games.

Only training and development is permitted. 

In terms of capacity numbers - 10 permitted in each separate space in the facilities. In addition to the 10, 2 coaches maximum.

With multi-purpose arenas, such as PASA, there can be 10 in each arena. You cannot have 10 in a dressing room and 10 on the ice, because of potential cross-over exposures.

There will be no back to back rentals. There will have to be a buffer between sessions to ensure kids on the ice are out of the building before the next group comes in.

Please continue to watch the website and our facebook page fore more information as it becomes available. 

Stay safe.
