On or before October 22, the province plans to launch an app that creates a QR code that can be scanned by the venues requiring proof of vaccination. Medica exemptions (if you qualify) will be embedded in this QR code to protect your privacy. Once scanned, the venue will receive a green check mark indicating you may enter or a red ‘X’ indicating you will not be permitted entry. Children under the age of 12 will be able to enter these venues and if accompanied by an adult, they must provide proof of vaccination.
