COVID-19 Gryphon Athletics Updates

Following the recent Province of Ontario announcement requiring proof of vaccination for high-risk, indoor spaces, the University of Guelph, Department of Athletics & Recreation will now require proof of vaccination for all members, program participants, patrons, and permit groups.

The mandatory vaccination requirement came into effect September 22 (5:30am).
As of this date, to access indoor Athletics facilities you must;
o Show proof of vaccination with photo ID or have an approved medical note.
o Facilities include;
? The Guelph Gryphons Athletics Centre
? The Gryphon Field House
? The Gryphon Centre Arena

The following information may help you understand what to expect starting September 22nd to gain entry to all indoor Athletics and Recreation facilities where sport, fitness and recreation activities take place:

Fully Vaccinated – If you are fully vaccinated you will be required to show proof of vaccination with photo ID to access Athletics indoor facilities, and you need to also comply with all health and safety measures including daily screening.
Fully vaccinated means - it has been at least 14 days since you received all required doses of an approved COVID-19 vaccine.
o I.e.; On September 22nd it means you’ve received all required doses no later than Wednesday September 8th.

Proof of ID includes:
o U of G issued student, staff, faculty cards
o Government issued ID (license or health card)

Proof of vaccination includes:
o The vaccination receipt

What to Expect: In order to successfully implement this vaccination mandate you can expect some changes to your routine when entering the facility. A greeter will be at the entrance of each facility reminding everyone to have their screening form, proof of vaccine and ID ready upon arrival. You will need to show this person your daily health screening (green check mark) from the U of G Screening tool.

If at a location with a swipe station (Athletics Centre & Field House and some Arena Athletics programs) a staff member will verify your proof of vaccination.
For students, staff, and faculty who swipe in using their ID card you will only need to show your proof of vaccination one time. Staff will note in our registration system that your proof of vaccination has been validated.

Exempt – If you have an approved exemption, you will be permitted into Athletics facilities. You must comply with all health and safety measures including daily screening.
