COVID-19 Updates

October 25, 2021

On October 22 the Ontario Government announced its plan to Safely Reopen and Manage COVID-19 for the long-term. Effective October 25 at 12:01 a.m., Ontario will lift capacity limits in the vast majority of settings where proof of vaccination is required, including sport & recreational facilities. This lifting of capacity limits does not impact play with FCSSC in any way. Our leagues will continue to play, as planned, for the remainder of the season.

Over the next six months, Ontario plans to slowly and incrementally lift all remaining public health and workplace safety measures, including wearing face coverings in indoor public settings and removing the provincial requirement for proof of vaccination. This plan does not change any of our plans for the Fall 2021 season but will positively impact play in FCSSC's Winter 2022 season.

Please remember to err on the side of safety and follow all MLHU Guidelines for indoor COVID Safety while at your play location:

  • Complete your COVID Self-Screening before leaving home
  • Wear your mask whenever you are not actively participating in the game. Understandable exceptions include catching one's breath after exertion and while drinking from one's water bottle. We recommend wearing shorts/pants with pockets (except in flag football) for easy storage/access to your mask throughout the game.
  • Maintain 6ft of physical distance from anyone else (on the sidelines or in the facility) when not actively participating in the game. We understand that some play locations have very limited space. When you can't achieve physical distance, always wear your mask.
  • Use the hand sanitizer that is provided as often as you can throughout the game

Thank you for your commitment to safe play, your cooperation and your kindness. #JUSTPLAY

October 22, 2021

On September 22, 2021 the Ontario government mandated proof of double vaccination for anyone entering a recreational/sport facility. When FCSSC began indoor play as part of our Fall leagues on October 12 we asked all of our members to bring Proof of Double Vaccination plus Photo ID to every game.

THANK YOU TO ALL OF OUR MEMBERS FOR YOUR COOPERATION & KINDNESS while we navigated this new process.

On October 15-17 the Ontario government released a vaccination receipt with QR code that could be downloaded by all Ontarians, along with an app, called Verify Ontario, that could read the QR codes on a vaccination receipt and instantly confirm double vaccination (or not). Starting October 22, all businesses had the option of using the new app and QR-coded receipts to check the vaccination status of their patrons.

FCSSC will happily check your proof of vaccination receipt, whether you provide us with your original vaccination receipt, or present us with your QR-coded receipt. Unfortunately, we cannot use the app and scan the QR code at all of the locations where we play but we can still read your vaccination information off the QR-coded receipts. So, please continue to bring whichever vaccination receipt you wish to present, along with your photo ID, and have it ready to present when you approach the check-in desk each week at your play location.

Your continued cooperation and kindness is so appreciated!
