Proof of Vaccination for City Arenas - Effective Sept. 22
Starting Wednesday, September 22, the Ontario government requires residents 12 and older to be fully vaccinated (including the 14-day waiting period) and provide their vaccination receipts or medical exemption alongside government-issued identification to access some indoor City of Guelph services. Read the Entry Protocols and leave extra time when you arrive!
Those under 18 years old are exempt if they are participating in organized sports, such as GGHA activities.

Residents who are 12 years or older must show proof of vaccination to access:

  • Recreation programs and activities (excluding organized sports)
  • Spectator and viewing areas
  • Recreational fitness areas
  • Basketball, hockey games or events at Sleeman Centre
  • Shows and performances at River Run Centre
  • Guelph Public Library at West End Community Centre

Residents who are under 18 years old are exempt from providing proof of vaccination or medical exemption if they are participating in an organized sports program. This includes sports leagues, organized pick-up sports, dance classes, martial arts, competitive swimming and swimming classes.

Medical exemptions from a doctor must include the reason for the exemption and any time limits associated with it.

The province is working to roll out a digital vaccine certificate and exemption platform. Until then, residents must bring a physical or digital copy of their vaccination receipt or medical exemption, be screened each time they enter and sign their name and phone number for contact tracing. Visitors should arrive early to make sure they get screened in time for programs and classes.

Download a vaccine receipt online at using a green health card and postal code. Anyone with red and white health cards or no health card must call 1-833-943-3900.
