The Vermont State Amateur Hockey Association is excited to see the many volunteers organizing programs in hopes of getting all kids back on the ice in the near future. Given the current status of the COVID-19 pandemic, VSAHA continues to monitor the guidance offered by the state of Vermont and will adjust our expectations as needed throughout the season.
Current guidance found on the Vermont Health Department’s page, Protect Yourself & Others | Vermont Department of Health, and reiterated in the Vermont Forward plan recommends unvaccinated people be masked for indoor activities. VSAHA is aware that many schools require masks to be worn by all people in the building as well and would support our member programs that want to follow their communities expectations to keep everyone safe. At this time, VSAHA recommends members follow the guidance offered by the State of Vermont and strongly encourages any unvaccinated person to wear a mask while indoors. As we did last year, documentation of teams and appropriate contact tracing should be continued until further notice.
