CENTRE WELLINGTON - In response to the provincial government's updated proof of vaccination, the use of the enhanced vaccine certificate with QR code and the Verify Ontario app will be required to enter township facilities.
Effective Jan. 4, township facilities will be required to ask for a proof of vaccination through the form of a QR code, the township tweeted:
Other cities such as the City of Guelph, Waterloo and Kitchener have updated their proof of COVID-19 vaccination requirements for people entering indoor facilities, in the wake of Ontario government requirements announced Dec. 10.
Wellington county towns and townships have not yet updated their proof of COVID-19 vaccination requirements for people entering municipality facilities yet. Centre Wellington Township was the first to announce their update.
Everyone 12 and older – except those with a valid medical exemption – entering recreation facilities will be required to:
- Show proof of vaccination via the QR code version
- Show government identification (a picture or legible photocopy is acceptable)
- Complete the COVID-19 health screening
- Complete the contact-tracing form
