Covid-19 Vaccination Passport
Starting Sep 22, the Ontario government is introducing new changes that will only allow fully vaccinated guests to dine indoors. We are sorry to see things come to this as we love all of our customers and know that some of you will be affected negatively by the new changes being made. These are government mandated regulations and we do not have any choice in the matter.
To try and make this process as simple as possible, we have collected some details of the new regulations from the government site, and provided them below to help answer your questions.
GOVERNMENT MANDATED CHANGES
Effective Wednesday, September 22, 2021, the Government of Ontario requires customers (12 and older) to be fully vaccinated (two doses plus 14 days) to dine indoors. Each person in a party must provide proof of vaccination and a government ID, such a driver’s licence, health card, native status card, passport, birth certificate, etc...
An enhanced vaccine certificate, available as a QR code, will be available beginning October 22.
No proof of vaccination is required to dine on the patio or pick-up take out.
The only exemptions permitted to dine indoors are for unvaccinated people with medical exemptions and people under 12 years old. Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions will be permitted with a doctor’s note until the medical exemption can be integrated as part of a digital vaccine certificate.
HOW CAN I GET PROOF OF VACCINATION?
Currently, vaccine receipts are available in PDF form to be downloaded or printed to your computer, phone or tablet. Ontarians who received their first or second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine out of province should contact their local public health unit to record their information and receive proper documentation. Both proof of identity along with proof of vaccination will be required. Individuals can provide proof of immunization by downloading or printing their vaccine receipt from the provincial booking portal, or by calling the Provincial Vaccine Booking Line at 1-833-943-3900.
