Niagara, Ontario – The City of St. Catharines, in line with the Province’s next phase of reopening, will be removing the requirement for proof of vaccination to enter City facilities, as of March 1.

“Throughout the pandemic, our staff have worked hard to implement a variety of health and safety measures to slow the spread of the COVID-19 virus, while balancing the needs and user-experiences of our residents. With a continually evolving reopening plan, we’re pleased to be able to open our doors while maintaining measures that will keep our community safe,” said Chief Administrative Officer David Oakes.

The health and safety of employees and visitors continues to be a priority, and as such, certain measures will remain in place at City facilities. Visitors will be required to self-screen at entry, wear a face covering or mask, and maintain physical distance.

Appointments for services and pre-registration options for programs continue to be available and encouraged through the City’s website.

As reopening plans move forward, the City will continue to evaluate the impacts of COVID-19 on operations and services, and is reminding the community to practice applicable health and safety measures to reduce the hazard of COVID-19. Before attending City facilities, residents are asked to self-monitor for potential COVID-19 symptoms and to cancel appointments if they are feeling unwell.

In line with the Province’s easing of restrictions, capacity limits at facilities will also be lifted on March 1.
