To best ensure the safety of guests and staff at this event seating will be limited according to current COVID regulations. Also, due to the new regulations coming into effect September 22, proof of vaccination and valid ID will be verified for admission. Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions will be permitted entry with a doctor’s note. 

How does an individual prove they are fully vaccinated if they are an Indigenous person and haven’t consented to providing their data to COVAX?

Ontario will support implementation of vaccine certificates for Indigenous communities whether or not they have opted to enter their data into COVax, while maintaining Indigenous data governance, control, access and possession principles.

What if I don’t want to disclose my vaccination status?

It is at the discretion of the individual to determine whether or not they would like to disclose their vaccination status. Should they make the decision not to divulge this information, they will not be permitted to access settings that require proof of vaccination.

In settings where you have to be vaccinated to attend, is a recent negative test sufficient to attend if you are unvaccinated?

A negative COVID-19 test or recent COVID-19 infection does not entitle a person to enter these settings, with narrow time-limited exceptions for testing. For the period between September 22 and October 12, 2021, it is intended that people attending wedding or funeral receptions at meeting or event spaces will be able to provide a negative rapid antigen COVID-19 test from no more than 48 hours before the event as an alternative to proof of vaccination. The only exemptions are for unvaccinated people with medical exemptions and people under 12 years old will also be permitted to enter these settings. 

Please note that children under 12 will not be permitted to attend this event.
