Ontario Temporarily Moving to Modified Step Two of the Roadmap to Reopen

In response to recent trends that show an alarming increase in COVID-19 hospitalizations, the Ontario government, in consultation with the Chief Medical Officer of Health, is temporarily moving the province into Step Two of its Roadmap to Reopen with modifications.

Proof of Vaccination is required in select settings. See below for impacts to Town of Lincoln facilities and services. The Province’s Proof of Vaccination app (Verify Ontario) is now available for download. As of January 4, an enhanced vaccination certificate with QR code will be needed to enter any setting where proof of vaccination is required. These are available for download from the COVID-19 vaccination portal.

Town of Lincoln facility and service updates are provided below as restrictions change. 

While visiting public spaces, everyone must continue to follow Public Health guidelines to limit the spread of COVID-19:

  • Practicing 2 (6 feet) meter physical distancing

  • Niagara Region Face Covering By-law 

  • Frequent washing / sanitization of hands

  • Avoiding touching shared surfaces

  • Staying home if feeling ill

Proof of Vaccination Requirements at Town Facilities

The chart below outlines the provincially mandated requirements for individuals accessing indoor sport and recreation facilities along with other Town facilities, including Fleming Centre, Jordan Lions Arena, Lincoln Community Centre (Seniors' Centre), Town Hall, Lincoln Public Library and Lincoln Museum and Cultural Centre.  

Please note that proof of vaccination using the new vaccine certificate with QR code and Verify Ontario app will be the only digital proof of vaccination accepted. Other third-party verification apps will not be accepted.

Need help printing copies of your enhanced proof of vaccination? 

Lincoln Public Library can assist with printing and lamination of vaccination certificates. These services are available at both branches during the closure.  Contact Lincoln Public Library for assistance.
