Masks are mandatory in all indoor public places.
The operator of an indoor public place must ensure that every person who is not wearing a mask is given a reminder to do so as soon as possible.
Masks are not required for children under 5, people with medical conditions that prevent them from safely wearing a mask, or people who cannot put on or remove a mask without assistance, and people who are swimming or acting as a lifeguard.
Masks can be temporarily removed to receive a service that requires removal of the mask, to consume food or drink, or to establish someone's identity.
Employees can remove their masks if they are in an area that members of the public cannot access, or if they are behind a non-permeable physical barrier.
Gatherings of up to 25 people indoors (or 150 people outdoors) are permitted in hotels. Food can be served at these gatherings only in accordance with the rules pertaining to restaurants and licensed premises (in order to eat together, patrons must be from the same household or fully vaccinated). Measures must be taken to ensure two metres of physical distance between guests. If the event is a wedding or funeral, the officiant and photographer do not count in the capacity limit.
If the gathering is for the purpose of training respecting first aid, emergency response measures or workplace safety and health protocols, there is no limit on participant numbers. The same restaurant rules for food service apply to these training events.
Hotel pools may open at 50% of their bather load. Operators must take reasonable measures to ensure that two metres of distancing is maintained. Everyone must wear a mask unless they are swimming or a lifeguard.
Hotel gyms and fitness rooms may open at 50% of usual capacity. Measures must be implemented to ensure members of the public are reasonably able to maintain a separation of three metres from each other. Change rooms are limited to 50% capacity. Contact tracing information must be collected. Masks must be worn at all times.
Hotel spas may open at 50% capacity with physical distancing measures in place between patrons and workstations, unless non-permeable physical barriers are placed between all chairs and other workstations. Contact tracing information must be collected.
Hotel Beer Vendors:
Retail beer stores may remain open. The number of members of the public inside the store is capped at 50% of the usual capacity. The operator must implement measures to ensure that members of the public are reasonably able to maintain a separation of at least two metres.
Restaurants and Licensed Establishments:
Restaurants and licensed establishments may open at 50% capacity indoors and outdoors. The following rules are in place:
Persons who claim to be fully immunized must provide proof. Persons who claim to reside at the same private residence can either provide identification or sign a declaration (see the contact tracing form below).
To prove they are fully vaccinated, patrons can either show their vaccine card or show the QR code to be scanned by your staff. See the link below for the scanner app.
The vaccination requirement applies only to persons over 12 years of age. If the adults and teens are vaccinated, children are allowed to sit with them at a table indoors.
VLT play is permitted in licensed premises. All the rules outlined above for licensed premises must be followed.
