City of Markham Vaccination Policy (updated September 22, 2021)

"Starting September 22, proof of full vaccination will be required to enter indoor recreation facilities by all visitors who are 12 years of age and older. Provincially defined medical exemptions apply.

When entering, you must show:

  • Ontario Ministry of Health COVID-19 vaccination receipt or other government issued vaccination record indicating that you are fully vaccinated, plus 14 days from your second shot;
  • Identification which includes name and date of birth (photo ID is not required); and,
  • Proof of completion of City of Markham COVID-19 Screening Questionnaire on your mobile device or a printed copy.
  • Youth athletes who are 11 years of age or under are exempt from showing proof of vaccination.

We recognize the effort that is made by our community to roll up their sleeves and get vaccinated, and that youth between the ages of 12 to 17 have only recently been eligible to receive their COVID-19 vaccines.  To support our community sport groups that are governed by a recognized Provincial or National Sport Organization, the City of Markham has made the following guidelines for youth athletes:

  • As of September 22, youth athletes between the age of 12 to 17 years of age must show proof that they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized by the World Health Organization
    By October 31, 2021, all youth athletes age 12 and older must be fully vaccinated, plus 14 days from their second shot to gain access to indoor recreation facilities

Throughout the pandemic, the City of Markham has taken a balanced and cautious approach to reopening in order to help keep our community safe.

Requiring all visitors who are 12 years of age and older to be vaccinated provides safer sport and recreation experiences that support mental, emotional and physical well-being and keep our community safe. The health and safety of our visitors, community and our staff remains our number one priority as we navigate the pandemic."

Town of Stouffville Vaccination Policy (updated September 22, 2021)
"As a result of the council resolution passed on September 21, please be advised that every patron, aged 12+ will be required to provide government issued identification with their name and date of birth, a clear COVID -19 screening and proof of vaccination, to access the facility unless they have a valid medical exemption with proper documentation.

Children under the age of 12 must still present identification to prove their age exemption. All children under 10 must be accompanied into the facility with an adult that meets the proof of vaccination requirements. Government issued ID may include a birth certificate, drivers license, health card, citizenship card, passport, etc. (student cards are not an acceptable form of identification)

To make the screening and proof of vaccination process as quick as possible for everyone, we ask that you arrive to your program early and have your identification, screening results and proof of vaccination ready to present to staff at the Facility. We ask for your patience as we navigate this new process; our goal is to serve everyone as quickly and safely as possible.
