New COVID-19 recreation facility entry requirement: Mandatory proof of vaccine and ID for 12+.

New COVID-19 recreation facility entry requirement: mandatory proof of vaccine and ID for 12+

Starting on December 20, 2021, anyone aged 12 and over, regardless of whether they are participating in an indoor sport, will have to show proof of vaccination and corresponding personal identification, to enter a Municipality of Clarington recreation facility. Children born in 2010 and turning 12 in 2022 will have a 12-week grace period from their birth date to become fully vaccinated with two doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine and may be asked to provide proof of age upon entry. Valid medical exemptions will be accepted. 

Proof of identification can be verified using the documents outlined by the province.  

These new protocols have been mandated by Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health as outlined in an announcement and Durham Region’s Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Robert Kyle through a letter of instruction. Read the COVID-19 Fact Sheet to find out how these regulations impact you.

These protocols are in place due to the rising number of COVID-19 cases in youth aged 12 to 17 associated with indoor organized sport and the new emerging variants of concern.  

Let’s work together to keep the community safe! Please respect these new rules and our staff, who have the difficult job of enforcing them.
