Provincial COVID-19 Measures
Effective December 15: Provincial Restrictions Exemption Program measures require youth 12-17 to show vaccination proof, privately paid negative COVID test (within the last 72 hours) or medical exemption if they are participating in activities open to anyone 18+, or are spectating. Proof is not required when all participants are under 18 (minor team sports, youth programs; coaches, instructors and trainers are exempt). ID is not required. Youth have 10 weeks past their 12th birthday until they must show proof. Schools and curricular activities are out of scope of REP and youth do not need proof for these activities.
Under REP, a vaccination series must be completed at least two weeks prior to non-essential service access (two doses for Pfizer, Moderna and AstraZeneca or one dose for Janssen). Proof is not required for essential services including paying bills, riding Transit, counselling and navigation services.
Provincial measures mandate physical distancing (where possible) and mandatory masking in all indoor spaces, workplaces and public vehicles province-wide.
Outdoor, private social gatherings are limited to 20 people with a minimum of two metres physical distancing between households.
Isolation is mandatory if you have COVID-19 or core COVID-19 symptoms.
Everyone's comfort level will be different. Please treat each other with kindness, patience and respect.
Masking, physical distancing and proof of vaccination with QR code required.
