A Toronto Strip Club Is Reportedly Requiring All Guests To Have At Least One Vaccine Dose

It was said that other Toronto strip clubs will have the same policy when they open this Friday.

Adult entertainment establishments in Ontario have been given the go-ahead to reopen when step three of Ontario's reopening plan begins this Friday, and one iconic Toronto venue has already announced that proof of vaccination will be mandatory for its guests.

The entertainment manager at Filmores strip club, Kaspar Cameron, said that all employees are fully vaccinated against COVID-19, according to the Toronto Sun.

"Everybody, our dancers, doormen, bartenders, everyone is fully vaccinated," said Cameron. "We're going to make it mandatory that customers will have at least one dose."

Filmores may not be the only strip club doing this, either. Cameron told the outlet that from conversations with owners and managers of other strip clubs in Toronto, he learned that they all plan to implement the same policy.

The club currently does not have the ability to verify proof of vaccination certificates, and Cameron hopes that the provincial government can come up with a solution. Narcity has reached out to Cameron for comment and will update this story when we hear back.

Dr. Isaac Bogoch, an infectious disease specialist, tweeted his support for Filmores' policy. "People are snickering, but this is a wonderful example of protecting workers and customers," Bogoch wrote. "Many businesses/organizations could learn a lot from this proactive approach."

As of 12:01 a.m. on Friday, July 16, indoor businesses like gyms, theatres, nightclubs and even casinos will be allowed to reopen. GoodLife Fitness revealed on Twitter earlier this week that members and associates will not be required to show proof of vaccination to enter its gyms.
