Proof of Vaccination - Effective October 4, 2021

Effective Monday, October 4, the provincial Proof of Vaccination Policy comes into effect. Under these new regulations, all those 12 years and older accessing the Regional Sports Fields or Columbus Field for organized events/activities will be required to provide Proof of Vaccination, or proof of medical exemption, to Town of Antigonish Staff. This includes games, practices, programs, tournaments, and competitions.

Leisure activities and informal play at Columbus Field and the Regional Sports Fields do not fall under these protocols.

This is now mandatory until further notice under the province’s new Proof of Vaccination Policy. All other public health measures (e.g., masking, and physical distancing) continue to apply to Town facilities during sporting events or organized activities.

Children who turn 12 between January 1 and October 4, 2021, have until December 31 2021 to attend events and activities while they get vaccinated. Children who turn 12 after October 4, 2021, have 3 months from their birthday to get vaccinated. If they choose not to get vaccinated, they will no longer be able to participate in the events and activities once the grace period is up.
