COVID-19 - Novel Coronavirus

State of Public Health Emergency

The County is adopting the Restriction Exemption Program. Proof of vaccination, negative privately-paid COVID test result or medical exemption is required for non-essential County services, along with ID (18+). Proof is not required for essential services including voting, paying bills, counselling and navigation services, and riding Transit.

Youth ages 12-17 do not need to show vaccination proof, negative COVID test or exemption if they are participating only in sport, fitness or performance activities. If they are spectating, they will need proof.

Check the FAQs for what types of vaccination proof we accept.

Under the provincial State of Public Health Emergency, provincial measures mandate physical distancing (where possible) and mandatory masking in all indoor spaces, workplaces and public vehicles province-wide.
