Covid-19 : Arena Entry Procedures
Submitted By Kelly Palmer on Monday, October 25, 2021
**New** Starting Wednesday, September 22 the City of Hamilton will restrict arena entrance to those with proof of vaccination / proof of exemption.  Please click Read More below in this article for their full announcement.


Each team must submit their Screening and Contact Tracing Log HERE

Click HERE for the online Electronic Health Questionnaire

This questionnaire is to be completed prior to EVERY ice-time and you must show the CONFIRMATION EMAIL you receive to the door screener to be permitted entry to the arena. The online questionnaire is compatible with both PC/Mac or Smart Phone.  We do not restrict spectators, but the City of Hamilton does impose building capacity limits so please be mindful.

As per the Provincial announcement on September 1, 2021, vaccine verification will be required to access indoor sports and recreation facilities as of September 22, 2021. On September 14, 2021 further guidance was released and as such, as of September 22, 2021 you will see the following changes to accessing indoor recreation facilities:

  • Access will only be available through the facility main access. City of Hamilton staff will be responsible for verifying vaccine requirements upon entry.
  • Any players, coaches, or officials aged 18+ will be required to show proof of vaccination + ID or exemption (FHA NOTE: The OMHA does require all participants 12+ be fully vaccinated by Oct. 31.  The FHA will begin to collect proof of vaccination in the coming weeks)
  • Any spectators/parents/siblings aged 12+ will be required to show proof of vaccination + ID or exemption
  • Permit holders will still be responsible for contact tracing and health screening
  • Businesses and organizations are not permitted to retain vaccine records or status, and as such patrons will be required to show their proof of vaccination each time they enter the facility

Vaccine verification and ID will be checked in accordance with the direction provided by the Provincial Ministry of Health. For more information:


Based on current information, the following will be required:

  • Proof of being full vaccinated (full series of vaccine at least 14 days before facility visit)
  • ID which shows the same name and birthdate of the individual
  • Both can be shown digitally (ie picture/PDF of documents or ID on phone)


We ask all members of the public to be patient if wait times are experienced and to adjust their arrival at the facility or number who are attending.

Thank you for your assistance in providing this information to your members.
