CHANGES TO PROCEDURES AT NORFOLK COUNTY FACILITIES
Submitted By Martin Jefferson on Tuesday, September 21, 2021
Good evening all,

As of September 22, 2021, the Province of Ontario will require members of the public to be fully vaccinated to access certain public settings, including recreation centres (O/Reg 645/21)

To enter a Norfolk County recreation facility (pool, arenas) or community centre/halls visitors and program patrons must provide proof of full vaccination as well as proof of identity as required by the law. If you fail to provide proof of vaccination, you will not be allowed to enter the facility. Staff are not authorized to make exceptions and are required to abide by provincial regulations.

 

The County will be utilizing a combination of staff and security personnel for the first 4-6 weeks of implementation. Security guards will be tasked with checking vaccination status, verifying identification, as well as, conducting the contact tracing and screening process. Every person will be required to move through this process. We ask that everyone is courteous and has their information readily available to help avoid any bottlenecks at the front door.

 

The full media release from Norfolk County may be found using the link below.

 

Please note, the Norfolk County policy does not include players who are in attendance to participate in sport, however, the previously released OMHA vaccination policy does require players 12 and older to be fully vaccinated by October 31, 2021.

 

Should you have any questions or concerns, please let me know.
