COVID-19 Protocols & Vaccine Policy

If you have any questions regarding this policy please contact,

Following Current Provincial Protocols

Provincial and LG&L Health Unit guidelines and protocols can be found here: The list is long and provides drop down information for various scenarios, ie; “What Does a Close Contact (High Risk) Contact Mean”, “What Do You Do If You Are a Close (High Risk) Contact”, etc.

All participants should be staying home from practice/games if they have the slightest COVID symptoms and also continue to use the Ontario self assessment tool before an event:

Warriors strongly encourage players to mask when at school and out in public to hopefully avoid contacting the virus and potentially having their team shut down because of a positive or suspected case occurring after an event.

Parents should be informing team managers or head coaches if their child is suspected of having or tests positive for COVID-19, up to 48 hours after an event.

Warriors Coaches and Managers: When dealing with a suspected or positive case please keep in mind that the personal confidentiality of the reporting individual is extremely important.

Warriors will continue to notify team members, competing teams and officials, (on behalf of parents of positive cases) if a confirmed or suspected case of COVID is reported after an event. Warrios will also continue to keep attendance records of all attendees to ensure we can inform all those close contacts if there is a COVID-19 case reported after an event.
