Town of Orangeville Vaccine Policy
Submitted By Michelle Whyte on Friday, September 17, 2021
As of Wednesday September 22, 2021, any adult (18+) entering any Town of Orangeville recreational facility (Tony Rose Memorial Sports Centre and Alder Recreational Centre included) will need to show proof of vaccination upon each and every entry into the building. 

A vaccine receipt and one piece of government issued ID must be provided.  This is a requirement of the Town of Orangeville and will be managed by Town staff.  Our programs will be affected by this as it will include any parent and spectator entering the building.  We do apologize for the short notice as this policy was issued by the Town just yesterday.  

Participants under the age of 12 are not eligible to get the vaccination at this time and are therefore not affected by this new policy.  Participants 12-17 years of age are not required to show proof of vaccination upon entry as per the Provincial regulation for vaccine passport and youth sport. 

We understand this may cause issues for families and we do understand your frustrations. If you or any other family member/friend are unable to bring your child(ren) to their program due to this new requirement by the Town of Orangeville, and feel you are no longer able to participate, please reply to this email with your name, your child(ren)’s name, and the age group they are registered in and we will contact you.

Your patience over the next few weeks will be greatly appreciated as Town staff and our volunteers adjust to this new policy.
