As you probably know by now, the certificate is designed to allow individuals who have been fully vaccinated, access to a number of businesses and public settings.

Based on this new initiative, the BMO Centre is releasing the following vaccination guidelines:

Individuals who wish to enter our facility will be required to present this information as well as a piece of government ID at the front doors. Employees of the BMO Centre will verify the vaccination certificate together with the government ID.

Residents can currently download proof of vaccination online from Ontario Health.   Once the QR Code system has been released by the province, QR codes can then be stored on a mobile device.

As a reminder, before entering the BMO Centre, everyone must still wear a mask, sanitize their hands, sign in and self-screen themselves for covid symptoms.

WALKING TRACK HOURS - COVID-19 UPDATE


In an effort to curb the spread of COVID-19, BMO Centre London has made the difficult decision to not reopen the track to public walkers this season. We plan to re-evaluate the situation at the start of next season, in November 2022.

The track is not open to the public at any other times; this includes weekends, evenings and holidays.

We thank you for your patience and understanding and hope to welcome you back soon.
