  • Every person who is 18 years an older will require proof of vaccination to enter the facility.
  • Every person who is under 12 years old will NOT have to provide proof of vaccination 
  • Every person who is 12-17 years old will have to provide proof of vaccination EXCEPT when participating in organized sport and active recreational activities.  Participation in organized sport would include any coaches, instructors officials (on and off ice) that are aged 17 and under.
  • Vaccination verification will be completed at the main entrance to each facility and will be based on the above criteria.  This will be done by municipal staff and/or a third party agency contracted by the Municipality.
  • Should an organization be required by their Provincial Sport Organization (i.e. OMHA or OWHA) to impose requirements that exceed the guidance provided in the Provincial Regulation, it will be the sole responsibility of that organization to enforce those requirements. .

Effective October 27th the Municipality will be taking over screening and contact tracing for anyone that enters a recreation facility. As the permit holder, you are no longer responsible for doing screening and contact tracing. The security guards at the door will be screening, contact tracing and completing vaccine verification.  These changes do not impact vaccine verification, that process will remain the same. 

The Municipality is launching an electronic COVID-19 self-screening on Wednesday, October 27, for those wishing to enter Clarington’s recreation facilities and complete the screening in advance. You can access the COVID-19 Self-Screening online, at the door using the posted QR code, and in person with facility staff.

PLEASE arrive 20-30 minutes before the start of the session so Health Checks can be confirmed.
