OHF Bulletin -- COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open

With the recent rollout of the province’s COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open the OHF would like to provide guidance to its Members, associations and teams as to the implications on programming.

Within the COVID-19 Response Framework: Keeping Ontario Safe and Open, the provincial government has established five colour coded levels of public health measures.




Each Public Health Unit falls within one of the following levels: 

Prevent (green) Standard measures. Restrictions reflect broadest allowance of activities in Stage 3. Highest risk settings remain close. 

Protect (yellow) Strengthend measures. Enhanced targeted enforcement, fines and enhanced education to limit further transmission. Public health measures for high risk settings. 

Restrict (orange) Intermediate measures. Enhanced measures. Restrictions and enforcement, avoiding any closures. 

Control (red) Stringent measures. Broader-scale measures and restrictions across multiple sectors to control transmission (return to modified Stage 2). Restrictions are the most severe available before widescale business or organizational closure.

Lockdown (grey) Maximum measures. Widescale measures and restrictions, including closures, to halt or interrupt transmission (modified Stage 1 or pre-Stage 1). 


The provincial government maintains an up to date list of the various levels and which Public Health Unit falls in each category, the list is available here. The below chart indicates the permitted activities within OHF programming for each level of the provincial government’s framework.

THE FIRST GOAL IS HAVING FUN. The Timbits Minor Sports Program is a community-oriented sponsorship program that provides opportunities for kids aged four to nine to play house league sports. The philosophy of the program is not based on winning or losing, but on learning a new sport, making new friends, and just being a kid. Tim Hortons currently supports more than 300,000 children on teams in hockey, soccer, ringette, lacrosse, softball and baseball leagues in Canada. Our sponsorship includes jerseys, coaching tools, participation medals and a local “Timbits Jamboree” to help kick off, or wrap up each season.
