The Government of Ontario announced that it is ending the Provincial Lockdown for three Public Health Units beginning on Feb. 10 and phasing-in a return to the Public Health Restrictions for the remaining Public Health Units and their respective colour-coded zones.

As a result of this decision, Ontario Soccer has announced that Return to Play can commence for the three Public Health Units, permitted to end their Lockdown, beginning on Feb. 10. As a reminder, in the Public Health Units which are permitted, only Phase 1; Individualized Training (Red), or Phase 2: Group Training and Modified Games (Orange, Yellow, Green) are allowed at this time.
Organizations can follow the Ontario Soccer Decision Making Tree to determine their Public Health Unit, which colour-coded zone their Public Health Unit falls under and then review the Return to Play Guide to understand which activities are permitted in your Public Health Unit.
Ontario Soccer is preparing for the Outdoor Season 2021, in whatever form that Government Public Health protocols will allow, and is encouraging the membership to begin their own Return to Play preparations.
