Updated City of London Arena Protocols Effective Oct 31
Submitted By Brady Parr on Tuesday, October 12, 2021
The Middlesex London Health unit has released a Letter of Instruction to all indoor recreation and sport facilities which includes arenas. The letter states that as of October 31, everyone 12 years and older will be required to show proof of double vaccination to enter any City of London arenas including Western Fair each and every time they enter the arena. This applies to all groups from within the MLHU area as well as any groups travelling from outside the MLHU area and wanting to enter our arenas.

Everyone can print or download their vaccination receipt which includes all the relevant information they need to prove that they are fully vaccinated. The receipts can be printed or downloaded from the Provincial government website. Those who need support obtaining a copy of their vaccination receipt, including those who do not have access to a computer, internet or printer, can call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900 for support.

 

Those wishing to enter the arena will need their current vaccination receipt alongside a valid piece of identification such as a birth certificate, citizenship card, drivers license, Government issues identification card including health card, Indian Status Card/Indigenous Membership card, passport or permanent resident card. Photocopies of these are all accepted.

 

Those that provide a written document completed and supplied by a physician or registered nurse stating that they are exempt for a medical reason from being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 are permitted to enter.

 

The Province of Ontario under their Reopening Ontario Act also now permits 100% capacity in spectator areas. This means that we are no longer limited to 2 parents/guardians per player. Anyone who enters to spectate is required to show proof of double vaccination. This change does not impact areas such as lobbies and dressing rooms where distancing is still required. This strictly is in designated spectator areas.

 

All other protocols under the Provincial Roadmap to reopening remain in place.
