PrintCampus Ice Centre Protocols


•    The health and safety of Ontario Tech University’s campus and the broader community 
      has always been the university’s top priority. Starting September 3, 2021, Ontario Tech requires 
      all students, staff and visitors coming to campus to be at least partially vaccinated against 
      COVID-19.  Further, all are required to be fully vaccinated by September 22nd, 2021 or have an 
      approved accommodation.

•    For children less than 12 years of age (or not turning 12 in 2021), vaccination is 
      not required at this time. Youth between the ages of 12-17 who ARE participating in on ice 
      activities are exempt from needing to provide proof of full vaccination at this time, however 
      children in the same age range who are not going on the ice will be expected to provide proof of 
      vaccination status.
