Vaccination proof broadened for recreation

There are some changes with proof of vaccination requirements in the north where indoor sports are played or practiced.

Starting October 14th additional groups will need to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19.

That includes anyone 12 and older coaching, officiating or volunteering at indoor organized sports unless a medical exemption applies.

With all seven Northern Ontario public health units implementing the same requirement, officials say there will be a consistent approach to vaccine requirements.

Proof of vaccination is not currently required for those aged 12 to 17 who actively participate in organized sports.
