Ontario's Vaccine Passport Will Reportedly Be Needed For Movie Theatres, Restos & Gyms

Proof of vaccination will reportedly be required in Ontario starting on September 22 at non-essential businesses such as gyms, movie theatres, indoor dining, concerts and large gatherings, government sources tell CTV News Toronto.

However, retail shopping and outdoor patios will not require proof of vaccination, the sources said.

Ontario's COVID-19 vaccine certificate will reportedly be used with a government-issued ID, and sources say Ontario is working on an app that will combine the two.

The certificate will allow people to show their ID and proof of vaccination from the app simultaneously through a personalized QR code, and the sources say this development should be available in October.

Businesses will also be receiving an app in October that will allow them to confirm the information in said QR codes, sources told CTV News Toronto.

Premier Doug Ford is set to make an announcement at 1 p.m. today along with Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kieran Moore and Health Minister Christine Elliott.

Health Canada has a robust website with all the latest information on COVID-19 vaccines and can answer any questions you may have.
