October 21, 2021 – For Immediate Release
Town of Carlyle Announces New Covid19 Vaccination Regulations for Municipal Parks, Recreation and Culture Facilities.
To protect the health and safety of residents, customers and employees, beginning November 1, 2021 anyone 18 years or older entering Recreation and Culture Facilities in the Town of Carlyle must have received 1 approved COVID-19 vaccination effective November 1, 2021 and a second vaccination effective November 30, 2021 or provide proof of a negative test within 72hrs of entry into the facility.
The Town of Carlyle is prepared to suspend the use of any facility indefinitely if it is reported that this rule is not being endorsed or abided by its users or user groups. This rule shall remain in effect until further review from Carlyle Town Council or until further changes are enforced by the Saskatchewan Government or Carlyle PRCD related government bodies, which ever comes first.
For clarification, these indoor facilities include:
- Carlyle Memorial Hall
- Carlyle Sports Arena
- Carlyle Curling Club
- Rusty Relics Museum
Council approved this action at their Regular Meeting Wednesday, October 20, 2021 as an added safety measure to complement the Provincial Public Health Order, reduce confusion for customers and address the increasing spread of COVID-19 in our community. We thank all residents for their cooperation throughout the pandemic as we work together to keep our community healthy and safe.
Proof of Full Vaccination
As a reminder, acceptable forms of proof of full vaccination, to be provided along with photo ID, are:
- Wallet cards received at time of immunization
- A printed copy of your MySaskHealthRecord vaccine certificate (with or without a QR code) or a ‘screenshot’ of your vaccine certificate (with or without a QR code) saved to your device
- A COVID-19 vaccine printout from Saskatchewan Health Authority Public Health
- A QR code/MySaskHealthRecord vaccine certificate uploaded to SK Vax Wallet app which will is available free from Google Play or Apple App stores
- Official proof of vaccine documents from other governments
Proof of Negative Test
Individuals who do not have proof of vaccination have the option of providing proof of a negative COVID-19 rapid antigen or polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test result from within the previous 72 hours. This test is to be done at the expense of the individual; a list of locations and labs offering testing services is available here. Self-administered take-home rapid antigen tests (e.g. pictures of negative tests) will not be accepted as valid proof of negative COVID-19 test results.
