The Ontario Hockey League (OHL) is expanding its vaccination policy. 

Everyone, including spectators, will need to provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 starting October 7th. 

The league says the change applies to those looking to get into the facilities of the 17 Ontario-based teams, including the North Bay Battalion. 

They will also have to follow any other safety protocols while in the facility. 

The OHL says children under the age of 12 will be required to be accompanied and supervised by a fully vaccinated adult and will be required to follow all safety protocols.
