Ontario intends to take additional steps to ease public health measures if public health and health system indicators continue to improve. This includes lifting capacity limits in all remaining indoor public settings. Ontario will also lift proof of vaccination requirements for all settings at this time. Businesses and other settings may choose to continue to require proof of vaccination. Masking requirements will remain in place at this time, with a specific timeline to lift this measure to be communicated at a later date.
The Ontario government has announced it will slowly ease public health measures that have been in place to curb the spread of the highly-contagious Omicron variant. The province detailed the reopening will take place over the course of three months with 21 days between each of the three stages.
The following are what we presently believe will be the lifting of restrictions as applies to Ye Olde Towne Hall. Enhanced proof of vaccination, and other requirements would continue to apply.
Today Premier Doug Ford announced the province will return to “modified Step 2” restrictions, which include reducing social gathering limits, closing indoor dining, and reducing capacity in retail settings.

Ontario’s COVID-19 vaccine certificate program, which launched Wednesday, September 22, prohibits those who have not been fully vaccinated from accessing certain indoor non-essential services including Meeting and event spaces such as Ye Olde Towne Hall in Ailsa Craig. Patrons wanting to visit will have to show proof that they have received both doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine 14 days prior.
Who is responsible for ensuring compliance with the COVID-19 vaccine certificate program?
At Ye Olde Towne Hall the renter or the organizer of the event is responsible for ensuring compliance. Businesses that are caught failing to check vaccination status face $1,000 fines. People who force their way into a business without showing proof of vaccination can be fined $750. Prior to entry into Ye Olde Towne Hall the organizer of the event will visually verify your vaccine certificate with accompanying government-issued physical identification such as a drivers license.
