The Middlesex London Health Unit announced yesterday, October 6th, that they will be issuing an instruction for all sports and recreational facilities to require anyone 12+ years old, or turning 12 in 2021, be fully vaccinated in order to participate in any organized sport. As outlined in the most recent Ontario regulation pertaining to re-opening of Ontario, we are required to follow any recommendation or instruction issued by our local Health Unit. To be clear, this means that anyone 12+ years old, or turning 12 in 2021, participating on a CheerStrike team or in a class, must provide proof of being fully vaccinated (or a valid medical exemption) by October 31st. Any athlete who turns 12 during the first 4 months of 2022 (the remainder of our season) will also need to provide proof of vaccination once they turn 12 – given the correct amount of time to receive both doses. For more information on this instruction, see the attached information from the MLHU below.
