COVID-19 Vaccine Passport May be Required

Proof of COVID-19 vaccination will be required to access non-essential businesses in Ontario, including gyms, indoor restaurants, movie theatres and concert halls, under the province’s new vaccine certification program starting Sept. 22, 2021.

It is possible that MBC members will be required to show this passport on entry to Town facilities. The Town of Milton is currently working to understand how this will impact the facilities and services and will provide further information as soon as possible.
