Proof of vaccine required for adult sports, activities at City of Cranbrook facilities

Adults ages 23 and older will need to show their vaccine card to participate in sports, activities

Proof of vaccination will be required to access all City operated recreation facilities for all adult sports and activities, effective immediately, the City of Cranbrook said in a statement Thursday (September 16).

This follows the province’s mandate around proof of vaccination cards for COVID-19, which was put in place on Monday, September 13.

“This requirement includes all adult sports including men’s and women’s recreational hockey at Western Financial Place, the Memorial and Kinsmen Arenas, along with racquetball, squash, and the walking concourse at Western Financial Place,” said the City in a statement.

The City adds that the vaccine card won’t be required for participants under 22 years of age involved in sports, as per the provincial order, nor the Aquatic Centre once it re-opens later this fall.

People will also not be required to show proof of vaccination to access normal, municipal government-related services.
