Proof of vaccination

As of September 22, 2021 the Province of Ontario requires that individuals over the age of 12 must provide proof of being fully vaccinated to access many public settings.  Please be prepared for this requirement when visiting indoor EarlyON programs.  To meet this requirement you will need to show proof of having received two valid doses of a COVID-19 vaccine, at least 14 days ago, and a piece of identification (such as a driver’s license or health card).

As proof of vaccination, you can show a paper or digital copy of your vaccine receipt.  Once released by the Province of Ontario, you will be able to use your vaccine certificate (or “passport”).

Enhanced health and safety measures, including the use of masks and physical distancing remain in place. 

The Central Zone of the St. Thomas-Elgin EarlyON system includes the City of St. Thomas, Township of Southwold and Municipality of Central Elgin.  Services in the Central Zone are provided by the YMCA of Southwestern Ontario.

Please use the interactive map to find out more information about all of our locations. You can also find information about our upcoming events from the calendar below. Make sure to select Central Zone Parks & Outreach to see events happening in this area.
