Vaccination Procedures to Enter Town of Aurora Facilities
Submitted By Joanne Rey-Reiter on Monday, September 20, 2021
Further to previously communicated information, we have now received the amendment to the provincial order regarding vaccination.

The following procedures will be required by all, effective Wednesday, September 22nd, 2021: Please note that as of Nov 1st 2021 the OMHA Vaccination Policy will take effect.  Please see the bottom of this article regarding the OMHA vaccination policy. 

- Any person entering the facility must provide proof of identification and proof of being fully vaccinated

Fully vaccinated means:

(a) the full series of a vaccine authorized by Health Canada (HC), including any combination of vaccines (with final dose received 14 days before); OR
(b) a vaccine not authorized by HC followed by one mRNA vaccine authorized by HC (with final dose received14 days before); OR
(c) three doses of a vaccine not authorized by HC (with final dose received 14 days before).

- Proof cannot be retained (i.e., we cannot collect the proof, the person just needs to show it)

- Proof must be provided at point of entry into the premises

  • This will be the responsibility of our Safety Ambassador and may be done outside of the main entrance or inside the main entrance, depending on where your Safety Ambassador(s) prefer to conduct their screening
  • COVID screening and contact tracing are still required, in addition to verification of proof of vaccination

- This requirement applies to all Town of Aurora indoor recreation facilities, including:

  • Aurora Family Leisure Complex (AFLC)*
  • Stronach Aurora Recreation Complex (SARC)*
  • Aurora Community Centre (ACC)*
  • Aurora Sports Dome (Dome)*

*Includes all spectator areas…ALL spectators over the age of 12 must be fully vaccinated


  • Under 12 years of age
  • Under 18 years of age AND entering the Facility to actively participate in an organized sport.
    • if under 18 years is only spectating, then must be fully vaccinated
    • All spectators age 12 or older must be fully vaccinated
  • Medical exemptions
    • Must provide a doctor or registered nurse in the extended class note that sets out the medical reason for not being fully vaccinated and the time-period for the medical reason
    • Requirements of the medical exemption note must include:
      • The name of the person in the written documentation must match the identification provided.
      • The physician’s or nurse practitioner's note is complete and includes:
        • Name and contact information of the physician or registered nurse in the extended class;
        • Logo or letterhead identifying the physician or registered nurse in the extended class (i.e., RN(EC), Nurse Practitioner or NP);
        • Statement that there is a medical reason for the individual’s exemption from being fully vaccinated against COVID-19; and
        • Any effective time-period for the medical reason which includes the date the patron is seeking access to the business or organization.
  • Coaches and volunteers
    Note: when a volunteer is finished their volunteer duties (i.e., Safety Ambassador) and if they remain to watch, they then become a “spectator” and must be fully vaccinated

NOT exempted and therefore, must be fully vaccinated

  • Parents or guardians dropping off their kids and entering the facility
  • Spectators, even if under 18 years of age
The above policy is to enter Town of Aurora facilities.
