The City of Windsor will require anyone 12 years of age or older to provide proof of full COVID-19 vaccination as well as valid ID prior to entering any indoor City recreational venue or any facility with indoor event spaces, starting Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021.

The city says that under the modified Ontario Regulation (645/21) that takes effect this Wednesday across the province, individuals between 12 and 17 years of age are not required to show proof of vaccination if entering such premises for the sole purpose of participating in an organized sport, while those that are 12 years of age or older are required to show proof of vaccination if they are attending as a spectator.

However, the city says in order to avoid confusion for the public and staff locally, as well as continue to increase the numbers of vaccinations throughout our region, Council has approved the administrative recommendation that all individuals 12 and older be fully vaccinated regardless of their purpose for attending.

The clearer City recommendation applies only to City-owned indoor recreational venues or facilities that have event spaces, such as banquet halls and conference/convention centres. Proof of vaccination is not required for outdoor venues or facilities.
