“We are so grateful to our community for being responsible and safe throughout the pandemic, and for respecting the restrictions in place in City facilities,” says Mayor Bill Dingwall. “As we transition into these new public health requirements, I want to thank residents for being understanding and patient as we all adjust to the new protocols.”
By order of the Provincial Health Officer, proof of vaccination is required to access Recreation and Culture facilities and services starting September 13, 2021. Patrons 12+ must have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine by September 13 and must be fully vaccinated by October 24 to access the following City facilities and services:
