In response to the current impacts of COVID-19 affecting Saskatchewan’s healthcare system and the high risk of COVID-19 transmission across Saskatchewan, Regina City Council has expanded the proof of vaccination or negative test requirements for all City of Regina facilities, except for Regina Public Libraries and the Transit Information Centre.
Effective Monday, November 1, 2021, proof of COVID-19 vaccination or a negative test result will be required for anyone over the age of 12 to access the Fieldhouse, Lawson Aquatic Centre, North West Leisure Centre, Sandra Schmirler Leisure Centre and Neil Balkwill Civic Arts Centre. Facilities will continue to follow the same process and procedures outlined in the Government of Saskatchewan’s current public health orders. We ask for patience and co-operation as staff work through this new process with you.
The above requirements do not apply if an individual is entering the premises solely to use a washroom or the purposes of health and safety which may include vaccination clinics, heating and cooling stations, food security programs or other services that address basic needs.
Proof of Vaccination
All patrons 12 and over accessing indoor City of Regina facilities will be subject to a proof of vaccination or negative COVID-19 test requirement. Only those individuals who are fully vaccinated or who can provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours will be allowed to enter the facility.
Residents under the age of 12, who are currently unable to receive a COVID-19 vaccine, will be exempt from the proof of vaccination requirement including the alternative of a negative test.
Any one of following will be accepted as proof of vaccination at City facilities:
- Wallet cards received at time of immunization
- A printed copy or screenshot of your MySaskHealthRecord vaccination certificate (with or without a QR code)
- A COVID-19 vaccine printout from SHA Public Health
- A QR code/MySaskHealthRecord vaccine certificate uploaded to SK Vax Wallet app
- Official proof of vaccine documents from other governments may be considered
Proof of Negative Test
Individuals who do not have proof of vaccination have the option of providing proof of a negative COVID-19 test result from within 72 hours. These tests can be either rapid antigen, or a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test, and must be administered by an approved location/lab as listed on the Government of Saskatchewan’s website. As per the Government of Saskatchewan’s directive, self-administered take-home rapid antigen tests will not be accepted as valid proof of negative COVID-19 test results.
In addition to the proof of vaccination, photo ID will be required from anyone 18 and older. Youth aged 12-17 will also need to show ID unless accompanied by an adult with proof of vaccination and ID. Youth aged 12 to 17, visiting a business without an adult, who do not have photo ID will be allowed to present other forms of government issued ID such as birth certificate or health services card.
Masks are required at all times, including moving between activities or machines, in all indoor public areas of City facilities, except while actively participating in physical activity.
If you are enrolled in swimming lessons, the City will refund the full amount, regardless of the date you choose to withdraw. All other fitness classes/programs will have a pro-rated refund based on the date of withdrawal.
