Couple things of note to plan for:
Each person who enters an indoor facility for sports, recreation, meetings, or events must show identification and scan COVID-19 proof of vaccination (QR code) at entry. Proof of vaccination may also be required for some outdoor activities and events.
You do not have to show your proof of vaccination if you are:
• 12 years and (84 days) 12 weeks of age or younger
• Entering a business temporarily to: use a washroom, access an outdoor area,
make a admission/membership purchase
• Accessing social services
(for example, health services, vaccination clinics, meal or food access, EarlyON programs)
• Entering the business for health and safety purposes
For more information, visit www.hamilton.ca/ProofOfVaccination
Below is the link to the QR code app for further information and to download or can be downloaded via Googleplay or Appstore on Smartphone/tablet
https://covid-19.ontario.ca/verify (For Businesses). This will also require all participants to ensure they have printed off or can access their new enhanced Vaccine Certificate with QR code, previous certificates without the QR code would need to be updated. https://covid-19.ontario.ca/get-proof/ is the website to get your new up to date Vaccine Certificate.
City of Hamilton Public Libraries can also help assist with printing these off for members of your groups if they do not have access to a printer.
Members can visit any library in person to print and laminate their certificate. 905-546-3200 is the general Library number who can transfer for you to a specific branch. Here is the website with more detailed information to the process https://www.hpl.ca/VaccineCertificates
Operating at 50% fire code capacity, with maximum of 500 spectators. Capacities may be further reduced for
safety or to ensure program ratios and quality. Confirm with facility supervisor.
In accordance with Provincial recommended screening tool: Self-Assessment Tool and any recreation facility Health Screening posters.
Health screening information does not need to be retained. Contact tracing records are no longer required.
Any person entering an indoor area must wear a mask or face covering in a manner that covers their mouth, nose and chin, unless: engaging in a fitness/sport activity, briefly consuming food/drink while distanced, under the age of 2, or medically unable to wear (documentation not required).
All groups who have returned have submitted a Covid Safety Plan, if you were a previous group have not returned to a facility yet before the previous restrictions please connect with myself so we can have that discussion to return.
If there is any questions at all to this please feel free to email or call and I can help assist with any clarification. If your group is unable to adhere to these regulations please let me know
