Brampton, ON. (October 15, 2021) – Effective November 1, 2021 at 12:01 a.m., all participants 12 years and older entering sports or recreational fitness facilities in Peel will be required to provide proof of vaccination or a valid medical exemption, along with identification. This will apply to youth and all coaches, instructors, caregivers, volunteers, and game officials.
This proof of vaccination program is directed under a Letter of Instruction issued by Peel’s Medical Officer of Health.
Beginning November 1, the following documents will be required for every entry into sports facilities:
- Identification and proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or
- A valid medical exemption.
Indoor sports venues in Peel Region have been identified as locations of concern which have been driving transmission of COVID-19 over the last few weeks. The Peel program is consistent with other municipalities and will help to protect Peel’s active youth sports community.
Peel Public Health supports a provincial approach to proof of vaccination for youth sports to bring consistency across Ontario.
Residents can get their first or second dose at any Peel clinic.
