"As of September 22, 2021, Ontarians will need to be fully vaccinated (two doses plus 14 days) and provide their proof of vaccination along with photo ID to access certain public settings and facilities. This approach focuses on higher-risk indoor public settings where face coverings cannot always be worn and includes:
Restaurants and bars (excluding outdoor patios, as well as delivery and takeout);
Nightclubs (including outdoor areas of the establishment);
Meeting and event spaces, such as banquet halls and conference/convention centres;
Facilities used for sports and fitness activities and personal fitness training, such as gyms, fitness and recreational facilities with the exception of youth recreational sport;
Casinos, bingo halls and gaming establishments;
Concerts, music festivals, theatres and cinemas;..."
Looking forward to our expanded offering of activities starting in October!
Have a wonderful day.
Good afternoon, Members.
While our society may not be fully back to "normal," we are in a much better position this fall to deal with COVID-19 and its variants. Public Health restrictions have been significantly relaxed so as to provide us the opportunity to socialize with our friends, family and neighbours once again.
Attached please find:
- In the Newsletter tab above: our "Fall 2021 Newsletter" version #1;
- In the Calendar tab above: our September 2021 "Calendar of Events."
The Newsletter will have updates throughout the fall. There will be programs added to the current offerings throughout the weeks ahead as public health restrictions permit, and as we find alternate locations to house our larger events. The latter is needed as the Barrhaven Seniors' Centre's building is currently not available to house events.
Each month, I will send out an initial calendar of events. Again, there may be additions and/or deletions which will be noted through emails to Members.
As Ontario's Chief Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Kieran Moore, stated yesterday:
"...He said he believes that when Ontario hits a 90 per cent vaccination rate, the province will hit a state where it becomes difficult for the COVID-19 to spread rapidly in the community.
"Instead of having waves that we're going to have to tolerate, we'll have small outbreaks that we’ll learn to live with," Moore said.
"(Those waves) will have a smaller impact on the health-care system and allow us to start to pull away some of the public health measures. That could happen as early as six to eight months from now."...
So, as the Barrhaven Seniors' Council looks ahead to our 2021/2022 season, we do so with a sense of optimism.
The 2021 AGM will be held in November under new guidelines received from the Canada Revenue Agency..
Feel free to pass on your suggestions to me at email@example.com about re-opening and about what programs you would like to see offered at that time. Click on the tab a the top of the page to review what programs were offered during Winter 2020 and/or Fall 2019.
