NYSAHA has updated it's position in regards to the NYS Mask Mandate imposed by Governor Kathy Hochul. Please read the letter from Joe Baudo which is posted on the NYSAHA website. The link is posted below.
" In furtherance of our prior Covid Protection Policies, we, as an organization, are requiring ALL of our membership to follow that Mandate as well as any supplemental Policy set forth by any Municipal Health Department having control over COVID 19 Policies. At present that means face coverings must be worn by all persons, over age two and able to medically tolerate a face covering/mask in all in-door facilities, whether on the ice, in the locker room while traversing around the indoors of any ice facility or during any organized in-door USA Hockey event unless that facility requires proof of vaccination to enter the facility."
