To all Elora Fergus Ringette Association members,
This is an important update regarding proof of vaccination requirements. Please read this email carefully to ensure youâ€™re prepared for ice-times going forward. If you are not prepared or comply you will not be permitted to enter the facilities.
Beginning tomorrow, the Ontario government requires patrons to be fully vaccinated (including the 14- day waiting period) and provide their vaccination receipts or medical exemption alongside government- issued identification (i.e. Birth certificate, Citizenship card, Drivers licence, Government (Ontario or other) issued identification card including health card, Indian Status Card/Indigenous Membership Card, Passport or Permanent Resident card) to access the CW Community Sportsplex and the Elora Community Centre.
