Arena Rentals

Due to the provincial mandate, Chatham-Kent will return to the modified version of Step Two of the Roadmap to Reopen effective Wednesday, January 5, 2022, at 12:01 am for at least 21 days (until January 26, 2022), subject to trends in public health and health system indicators. Our facilities at this time will be closed and no rentals or programs will be offered.

Currently, every spectator 12 years of age and older entering arenas must provide identification and proof of being fully vaccinated.

Effective January 4, 2022, Ontario will begin requiring the use of the enhanced vaccine certificate with QR code and the Verify Ontario app in settings where proof of vaccination is required.

The QR code can be used digitally or by printing a paper copy. Individuals can visit their local library or can call the Provincial Vaccine Contact Centre at 1-833-943-3900 to have their vaccine certificate mailed to them. They can also visit a Service Ontario centre to receive a printed copy.

These instructions, including any revisions to these instructions, can be found on the Chatham-Kent Public Health website. Inquiries about these instructions should be directed to Chatham-Kent Public Health at
