The proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test requirements will apply to:

  • Access to the Moose Jaw Museum and Art Gallery and Mosaic Art Gallery.
  • Ticketed sporting events at all indoor facilities.

In accordance with the order, options for Proof of Vaccine Status include:

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, attending without an adult and 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.

Individuals who do not have proof of vaccination, which includes partially vaccinated individuals; and, individuals who have medical or religious exemptions that prohibit them from receiving a COVID-19 vaccine will be required to provide proof of a negative Covid-19 test within the previous 72 hours.

Only COVID-19 PCR or rapid antigen test results provided by certified healthcare providers, including private providers will be accepted. A self-administered take-home rapid antigen test will not be accepted as valid proof of negative COVID-19 test results. The cost for all proof of negative test results will be the responsibility of the individual.

We please ask that everyone visiting these facilities be patient and kind with staff and other customers as we all work through this new requirement.
