Proof of Vaccination Required at City Facilities Beginning October 1

Effective October 1, 2021, a provincial requirement for proof of COVID-19 vaccination or negative test for individuals over the age of 12 will be implemented at designated City of Moose Jaw facilities.

City of Moose Jaw Masking and Proof of Vaccination Guidelines

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

  • Access to the Yara Centre fitness centre and walking track.
  • Ticketed sporting events at all facilities.
  • Ticketed live music and concert events at all indoor facilities.
  • Conference centre at Mosaic Place.
  • The removal of masks for individuals 18 years of age and older while participating in athletic or sports activities, for the duration of the sport or activity only.
  • The removal of masks for on-ice/on-court/on-field game officials while officiating in sports activities, for the duration of the activity only.

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

  • Wallet cards received at time of immunization;
  • A printed copy of your MySaskHealthRecord (MSHR) vaccine certificate (with or without a QR code);
  • A screenshot of your MSHR vaccine certificate (with or without a QR code) saved to your device;
  • A screenshot of your MSHR vaccine certificate (with or without a QR code) saved to your device;
  • An earlier version of your MSHR COVID-19 vaccine certificate;
  • A COVID-19 vaccine printout from Saskatchewan Health Authority Public Health; or,
  • A QR code/MySaskHealthRecord vaccine certificate uploaded to SK Vax Wallet

See links below to view the Government of Saskatchewan informational videos on how to access vaccine certificates:

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.

The City of Moose Jaw asks that all customers visiting these facilities be patient and kind with staff and other customers as we all work through this new requirement.
