Proof of vaccination no longer required at recreation facilities

(Barrie, ON) - On February 14, 2022, the Government of Ontarioannounced plans to move to the next phase of reopening, which included lifting proof of vaccination requirements for all settings effective March 1. As such, proof of COVID-19 vaccination will no longer be required for visitors to any of the City's recreation facilities.

Also effective today, the City will no longer require pre-registration for drop-in programs, with the exception of Adult/Senior Hockey and virtual fitness classes. All other drop-ins will be available on a first-come, first-served basis.

Visitors to City recreation facilities will still be required to wear a mask or face covering at all times inside the building, with the exception of eating or drinking or when engaging in physical activity.
