Restrictions Exemption Program

Restriction Exemption Program

Everyone 12 years of age and over is required to show government-issued ID along with government-issued proof of vaccination, or, a negative privately-purchased COVID-19 test upon each visit of a YMCA Health and Wellness Centre or YMCA Child Care Centre.

By implementing the Government of Alberta's Restrictions Exemption Program and requiring proof of vaccination or a recent negative privately-purchased COVID-19 test, YMCA programs and services will continue to be offered uninterrupted.

To download your vaccination records, visit alberta.ca/covid19-vaccine.

YMCA Health and Wellness Centres

The only acceptable proof of vaccination will be either a previously validated vaccine record on a YMCA Membership Card (Edmonton only) or an Alberta vaccine record QR code with proof of a two-dose series vaccination or single-dose Janssen vaccination at least 14 days from the second dose of a two-dose vaccine or a single dose of Janssen.

The following procedures came into effect on November 15, 2021:

YMCA Members (Edmonton only)

Any member who has not previously provided proof of vaccination must present an Alberta vaccine record QR code, or a negative privately-purchased COVID-19 test upon entry to all YMCA Health and Wellness Centres.
