We have been put in a challenging situation with regard to the government mandate to require vaccine passports for admission to some businesses—including gyms. Starting September 22, 2021, The Province of Ontario has mandated numerous businesses, including gyms, require proof of full vaccination (two doses plus 14 days) from all patrons without a legitimate medical exemption. We value each of our members, and recognize & respect that people have differing views on this issue.
To ensure we can stay open as a business to serve our community, we must comply with this temporary measure required by the government. This is a very challenging time as we are bring forced to make decisions that will affect our ability to serve all our clients. But our commitment to our members is unwavering: We will find a way to help you train to the best of our ability.
- If you ARE fully vaccinated or will be by September 22, please upload your document here.
- If you will not be vaccinated before September 22nd, you are welcome to attend class until the mandate comes into effect. As of September 22nd, we will need to place a hold on your account until you are fully vaccinated.
- If you ARE UNABLE to receive both doses of a WHO approved COVID-19 vaccine due valid medical reasons, please email email@example.com
- If you ARE NOT PLANNING ON RECEIVING the COVID-19 vaccination, we will be forced to terminate your class membership and/or find alternative training options for you. We will welcome you back once Ontario’s Enhanced COVID-19 Vaccine Certificate is lifted.
We strongly encourage you to reach out to a trusted medical professional regarding your vaccine hesitancy. If you do not have someone you can speak with, I will do my best to put you in contact with a medical professional from our community to talk you through your concerns.
Here are the full details from the Ontario Government we are following. Have a look here if you need guidance on where to locate your vaccine proof, medical exemptions, etc. Rest assured that we remain committed to your health and well-being. We will continue to ensure our gym is safe and clean by using the same industry-leading protocols we have used throughout the pandemic.
Thank you for your understanding and continued support. Don’t hesitate to contact us personally if you have questions!
