OGEHR Vaccine Policy

Although there is no COVID vaccination requirement to belong to the Ontario Guild of English Handbell Ringers, participants of any in-person event organized by OGEHR will be required to show proof of double COVID-19 vaccination or a valid, current (within 48 h), negative COVID-19 test. This policy will remain in place until such time as the Ontario Provincial Government determines that COVID-19 proof of vaccination is no longer necessary. 

Our Return to Ring survey was conducted in September, 2021. The results have been very useful in determining the above policy for OGEHR in-person events. For the full survey results, please click the link below.
