Brantford implements provincial vaccination regulations

NewsBrantford implements provincial vaccination regulations

City of Brantford implemented provincial vaccination regulations on Wednesday, September 22.

Under the regulations, patrons attending the City’s recreational facilities and the Sanderson Centre for the Performing Arts will be required to show proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and identification before they can enter. Proof of a negative COVID-19 test result will not be accepted in place of proof of full vaccination.

Proof of vaccination (POV) will be accepted if the person’s name and date of birth on their identification document matches the name and date of birth on their accompanying vaccination receipt. Examples of acceptable identification documents include an individual’s birth certificate, citizenship card, driver’s licence, Government (Ontario or other) issued identification card, Indian Status Card /Indigenous Membership Card, Passport or Permanent Resident card.

Acceptable vaccination receipts must include the person’s name, date of vaccination and product name (brand of vaccine) at the time of vaccination. For more information regarding proof of vaccination documentation, please visit the Ontario government COVID-19 proof of vaccination Frequently Asked Questions webpage.

Patrons that cannot provide proof of identification and double vaccination who are not included on the list of approved provincial exemptions will not be permitted entry into the facilities where proof of vaccination is required (as outlined below). Records of vaccination status will not be maintained therefore, patrons will be required to repeat this screening process each time they enter the facility.

Beginning Wednesday, September 22, 2021, COVID-19 vaccination check-in stations will be located at the entrances of City recreational facilities that are impacted by the new provincial proof of vaccination requirement, including the Wayne Gretzky Sports Centre, the Brantford Civic Centre, Lion’s Park Arena, the Beckett Adult Leisure Centre (opening September 27th), and the City’s various Community Centres,. Patrons entering these facilities for recreational purposes will be asked to complete a screening process and provide proof of vaccination or of exemption in order to enter the City facility.

Patrons attending events at the Sanderson Centre will be asked to self-screen prior to entering the facility and provide proof of vaccination or exemption at the entrance doors prior to scanning tickets for entry. Ticket refunds for those persons who fail the screening process or are otherwise not permitted entry will be available through the box office. Persons entering the building box office area for the sole purpose of purchasing tickets are not required to provide proof of vaccination. 

Proof of vaccination will also be required for visitors to Brantford City Hall. if the purpose of the visit is for an extended meeting with City staff that exceeds 15 minutes – for example, meeting with staff to review a building permit application. Proof of vaccination is not required for transactional services– for example, bill payments, drop off and/or pick up of documents.
