The City of Windsor is  further lifting of COVID-19 restrictions on March 1st.

On Monday, City Council voted to rescind the proof of vaccination required from anyone entering a City-owned indoor recreation venue or facility.

This follows the announcement made on February 25th, 2022, by the Windsor-Essex County Health Unit rescinding their Letter of Instruction relating to recreation facilities. Residents visiting City recreation and culture facilities can expect the following as of March 1st:

  • Removal of the requirement to provide proof of full vaccination and valid identification
  • Transition from active screening to passive screening, with each person entering a facility being required to self-screen based on information posted at facility entrances
  • Removal of capacity limits at all indoor and outdoor facilities
  • Gradual removal of the requirement to pre-register for select activities

Participants are reminded of the following:

  • Masks will continue to be required unless the participant is engaging in physical activity or is eating or drinking. (During those circumstances the mask can be temporarily removed.)
  • Physical distancing is strongly recommended.
  • Do not attend any facility or program if you are sick.

The city says that residents will also notice the gradual re-opening of Customer Care at Capri Pizzeria Recreation Complex, Forest Glade Community Centre, Constable John Atkinson Memorial Community Centre, and Gino & Liz Marcus Community Complex, which is expected to begin the week of April 4th, 2022.

Access to other municipal buildings such as 350 City Hall Square West and 400 City Square Hall East will continue to be by appointment as much as possible in an effort to ensure social distancing can be maintained. Masks will be required, though proof of vaccination will no longer be needed.
