GLHA Covid 19 Updates Dec 11, 2020
Submitted By Webmaster on Friday, December 11, 2020
As of this afternoon we have been advised by the city of London that all hockey associations under the GLHA umbrella will be under the RED control Measures under the open and Safe Ontario Framework for all teams. 

The following Guidelines have been issued to us by the City of London 

The provincial government has moved the Middlesex Health Unit to the red level as of December 14, 2020.


This has some significant impacts to our arena operations. Effective Monday, December 14, 2020 the following rules will be in place.


  • Maximum of 10 participants and 2 coaches/instructors or trainers on an ice pad.


  • Arena dressing rooms are now closed as per the regulations under the red level. This means that seats will be set-up in the lobby areas for participants to put on and take off skates. All participants will be required to come dressed except for skates.
    • With dressing rooms being closed there will be 30 minutes between each rental time so that once the group leaving the ice get undressed and departs, we can sanitize the area and the next group can arrive. * See Scenario example below


  • No Games or scrimmages are permitted – practice/instruction only


  • One parent/guardian is allowed for participants under the age of 18 to watch from the designated spectator viewing area.


  • While on the ice and in the arena the participants must maintain a physical distance of 2 meters from each other.


  • Megaphones/microphones must be used for instruction – no shouting


  • All groups are required to be pre-screened before entering the arena and provide contact information for contact tracing purposes. We already take care of this in our current protocols so nothing new is required.


All other protocols such as health assessments remain in place.

Due to these rules that have been set in place, the GLHA association is reviewing these protocols and evaluating the financial impact.  No decisions have been made at this time until all associations have been able to review with their boards.
