Vaccination Requirements Changing Jan 4, 2022
With the province introducing measures to strengthen the proof of vaccination requirements in Ontario, the Township of Woolwich wants to make customers and residents aware of upcoming changes to the proof of vaccination procedure for those entering our recreation facilities.  

Effective December 20, 2021, proof of vaccination and valid government ID will now also be required for youth aged 12 to 17 years to enter recreation facilities for their sport, per Ontario Regulation 364/20. Everyone 12 and older entering our recreation facilities will be required to: 

  • show proof of vaccination (QR code version required as of January 4, 2022)
  • show government identification 
  • complete the COVID-19 health screening
  • complete the contact tracing form

These requirements are already in place for volunteers, parents and spectators (12 and older). 

If your 12-17 year old child is registered in a program and is not fully vaccinated, they will not be able to participate as of December 20, 2021. Please email Customer Service to withdraw from the program. 

Everyone will be required to show proof of vaccination and identification each and every time they enter the facility. 

Use of enhanced vaccinate certificate with QR code

Starting January 4, 2022, only the enhanced vaccine certificate with QR code can be used as proof of vaccination to enter any recreational facility. The QR code proof can be used digitally (on your phone) or by printing a paper copy. Individuals can download their enhanced certificate with QR code by visiting COVID-19 get proof. Instructions for how to save it to your phone are on the website. 

Starting January 10, 2022, recreation facilities will no longer accept physician notes for proof of medical exemption. Residents with a medical exemption will need to present a provincially-issued exemption QR code for verification. Further information about the exemption QR code process can be found on the province’s website
