The VOICE of Anglers and Hunters since 1928

OFAH and COVID-19

UPDATE

Earlier this month the government of Ontario announced further COVID-19 restrictions designed to reduce the spread of COVID-19. The government of Ontario is recommending that all Ontarians restrict travel to other regions of the province to only essential purposes. The OFAH encourages everyone to follow the guidance of public health officials, realizing that with gun seasons for moose and deer starting shortly, this will seriously disrupt many of our members’ hunting plans. See the links below for guidance from public health units.

You can read the full announcement at https://news.ontario.ca/en/release/58767/ontario-implementing-additional-public-health-measures-in-toronto-ottawa-and-peel-region. We also recommend visiting https://covid-19.ontario.ca/ for additional information on COVID-19 and how to stay safe.
