We have received updated facility access protocols for all Norfolk County Facilities. See below.
BEGINNING DECEMBER 20, 2021, access to Recreation facilities by youth in the 12 to 17 age categories will require proof of vaccination. The exemption for this age cohort for participation in organized sport has been removed.
BEGINNING JANUARY 4, 2022, access to all recreation facilities will require the use of the province’s Verify Ontario App. This will mean that all patrons of the facility will be required to provide a vaccine passport with the QR code visible. Both digital & paper copies will be acceptable as the app will scan both.&n bsp;Vaccine passports WITHOUT the QR code will NO longer be accepted. If you do not have a passport with the QR code, you can download it on the provincial government’s vaccination portal. (Instructions have been included at the bottom of this email) If you have no ability to do this yourself and you have no access to friends or family who can do it on your behalf, our Customer Service Team at the Simcoe Recreation Centre may be available to assist you.
BEGINNING JANUARY 10, 2022, medical and clinical exemptions will require a certificate with a QR code as well. Doctors’ notes will no longer be accepted. For more information on this, please read below as well.
Unfortunately, access to our rinks, pool & multipurpose areas will require enforcement of these new changes.
We thank you in advance for your understanding & cooperation. Together we can beat this. Let’s all have a safe & healthy holiday season!
