As of November 1, entrance to all recreation centres in Brampton will only be permitted to those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19.

During his weekly press conference on Wednesday (October 20), Mayor Patrick Brown clarified proof of vaccination will be required for all those over the age of 12, including participants of recreational events, as well as parents, caregivers, coaches, instructors, and game officials.

“I understand this was a bit of a grey area before in terms of instructors, coaches, caregivers, and spectators—they too will have to be vaccinated,” Brown said.

Exemptions will apply, and those who are not medically able to get vaccinated can still enter these facilities.

“Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to a medical exemption will be permitted entry with a doctor’s note indicating what their COVID-19 vaccination exemption is,” Brown said.

Recreation staff will accept both the Province’s enhanced digital vaccine receipt with the official QR, as well as the original paper receipt, along with one additional piece of identification.

“This is consistent with what we’re seeing with other municipalities across the GTHA,” Brown said.
