As of 12:01 am on July 16th the Province of Ontario will be entering Step Three of the Roadmap to Reopen. Upon entering Step Three all indoor meeting or event spaces will be permitted to operate with physical distancing and other restrictions still in effect and capacity limited to not exceed 50 per cent capacity or 1,000 people, (whichever is less). Upon the resuming of business, we will adhere to all health and safety measures including the Province’s Guidance for Professional Meeting and Event Facilities during COVID-19 plan, approved by the Office of the Chief Medical Officer of Health.
As of September 22, 2021, as per the government of Ontario, the Shaw Centre will require individuals to be fully vaccinated (two doses plus 14 days) and provide their proof of vaccination along with photo ID such as a driver’s licence or health card to access the Shaw Centre.
Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions will be permitted entry with a doctor’s note until recognized medical exemptions can be integrated as part of a digital vaccine certificate. Children who are 11 years of age and younger and unable to be vaccinated will also be exempted from these requirements.
For the period between September 22 and October 12, 2021, it is intended that people attending wedding ceremonies and receptions will be able to provide a negative rapid antigen COVID-19 test from no more than 48 hours before the event as an alternative to proof of vaccination. These rapid antigen tests would have to be privately purchased.
Although our building is open, we will continue to review every inquiry on an individual basis. This is due to the number of costs and considerations with regards to health and safety measures and operational standards of our building. As always, our priority is and will continue to be the health and safety of our staff, clients and attendees.
Please contact us at email@example.com if you have any questions or concerns.
