Town of Essex Vaccination Requirements

OMHA Vaccination Policy


Some key points to note:

  • This does not affect players under the age of 12 (born in 2010 or later).
  • This only impacts players and participants over the age of 12 (born in 2009 or earlier – U13-U18).
  • Although the Town of Essex is not requiring youth age 12-17 to be vaccinated to participate in a sport program, the OMHA has mandated that all Affected Persons be Fully Vaccinated (including the 14-day period after their second dose) by October 31, 2021.
  • Affected Persons include players, team officials, game officials, association officials, volunteers and instructors.
  • Requests for accommodation must be submitted directly to the OMHA for review and approval.  Any Affected Person who is granted accommodation must undergo regular COVID-19 testing and must provide proof of a negative test not more than 72 hours prior to each activity.

What do I need to do to attend development skates and tryouts?
In order to attend development skates and travel tryouts, anyone entering the arena will be screened by Town of Essex staff and will need to meet their requirements as outlined in the link above.  In addition, all entrants need to complete the EMHA COVID-19 Screening Form prior to arrival at the arena.  Once at the arena, all entrants must check in with EMHA volunteers and provide contact information (name and number) for contact tracing purposes.  Once teams are established, proof of vaccination will be collected.  Please give yourself some extra time when coming to the arena to account for the new check in procedures.

Thank you!

This is the story of two great credit unions coming together on January 1, 2006. We became United Communities Credit Union following a merger of Heartland Credit Union (1952) and Woodslee Credit Union (1943)- two organizations with a very long history of serving the banking needs of our communities. Today United Communities is one of the largest credit unions in Ontario, serving more than 36,000 member/owners with total assets under administration of $660 million. United Communities offers a full range of banking, borrowing, investment and insurance products and services. We have a long-standing history of making a difference in the communities where our member/owners and employees live and work. From our Farms to Food Banks and Doctor’s Inn initiatives to our substantial financial support of economic development, financial literacy, and environmental sustainability, we’re committed to the ongoing vitality of our communities. United Communities Credit Union is owned and operated by area members, with a board of directors formed of local, elected members. Jim Lynn, President & CEO maintains offices and residences in both regions in keeping with the regional focus of our Credit Union business model.
