Scugog – Effective Wednesday, September 22, proof of vaccination will be required to enter Township recreation facilities as per the Ontario’s Proof of Vaccination Policy.

As required by the Province, all patrons 12 years and older must be fully vaccinated (both doses of a two doses vaccine or one dose of a single dose vaccine plus 14 days) and provide proof of vaccination along with identification on each visit. Proof of vaccination does not apply to youth 12 to 17 years old who are actively participating in organized sport (training, practices, games and competitions). Individuals can provide proof of vaccination by downloading or printing their vaccine receipt from the province booking portal or by calling the Province Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900.

When patrons arrive at the Scugog Community Recreation Centre, a security guard will be at the entrances to ask for proof of vaccination for applicable patrons and spectators. To protect the privacy of our patrons, information will not be stored. Visitors and spectators 12 years and older will be asked to provide the documentation each time they enter the facility, unless they are a youth 12 to 17 that will be actively participating in an organized sport. Individuals with a medical exemption are required to present identification and a written document, signed by a physician or registered nurse in the extended class information, stating the individual is exempt for a medical reason.

All other public health measures (e.g., masking and physical distancing) continue to apply.

  • Scugog Community and Recreation Centre (SCRC)
  • Blackstock Recreation Complex
  • The Lookout Youth Centre
  • Scugog Shores Museum Village and Archives
  • Meeting Rooms and Community Halls for Wedding and Religious Ceremonies
