Players, staff and billet families with the Ontario Hockey League will all be required to be vaccinated against COVID-19 for the upcoming season.
The league released its vaccination policy Tuesday for the 2021-22 season and says it is effective immediately.
The policy applies to "OHL Community Members," including people who attend training camp, practices, games or play in the league, and it specifically references players, coaches, trainers, team and league staff, officials, volunteers and billet families.
The OHL says vaccines must be administered at least two weeks before the start of training camp.
The league says the policy is being put in place to protect the health and safety of OHL members and reduce potential transmission of the virus.
