OHL to Require Proof of Vaccination by September 22, not October 7th


At the start of September, the Ontario provincial government announced that the people of Ontario will need to show proof of vaccination in selected settings, such as restaurants, gyms, sporting venues and more. We now know that this mandate will be implemented on Sept 22nd. With this change just a week away, the OHL had no choice but to accelerate their vaccine mandate to match the provincial government’s requirements.

Effective as of September 22nd 2021, the Ontario Hockey League requires that all spectators and other attendees at all OHL events, including games and practices, must be fully vaccinated against COVID-19, at least 14 days prior to the game or event. Children under the age of 12 will be exempt from this rule however, a fully vaccinated adult must be with them.

The OHL has explained what proof you will need to  provide to get into any OHL arena. There are 3 options to prove you are vaccinated which are listed below

  • A digital or physical Dose Administration Receipt
  • Medical records signed by a licensed health care provider indicating vaccine name and dates of administration
  • Digital or printed record issued by government officials for the purpose of evidencing fully vaccinated individuals

SaultOnline has reached out to the Soo Greyhounds about fans who are unvaccinated and have already purchased tickets for the teams next preseason game on September 25th. SaultOnline will release more details on this developing story as they become available.

  1. Thank-you !

    The last 2 games it was difficult maintaining distance as people kept changing seats. Also not many kept masks on.

    I’m not sure how they will handle seasons tickets.
