In response to the provincial announcement on Feb. 14, 2022, the Town of Georgina plans to lift some public health measures at indoor recreation facilities. Effective March 1, 2022, proof of vaccination will no longer be required and capacity limits will be lifted. Face coverings in indoor public settings and maintaining physical distancing remains in place, with exceptions for people participating in specific recreation programs.
Patrons visiting any Georgina facility are encouraged to conduct a self-health assessment for COVID-19 symptoms before entering the building. Anyone who is experiencing symptoms are asked not to visit the facility until their symptoms have subsided.
