Questions & Answers re: Covid/Vaccines Protocol

 

Q: Do we send proof to WAC, or bring it to next practice? 

A: Kids will have to bring proof and ID daily to the pools (no one is collecting) please see the answer below for more information 

 

 Q:   Would it not be easier to send the copies for our kids to you guys then u can give them to the city to keep on file if any issues, concerns questions to speed entry?

A:   WAC or the WIATC/WFCU cannot collect or keep health information, nor can they keep a running list of those that have been confirmed as Vaxxed.  This is per the Personal Health Information Protection Act.

 

Q:  What can I show as proof of identification?

A:  Individuals must provide proof of identification so that the business or organization can ensure the vaccination receipt belongs to the person. The person’s identification must be issued by an institution or public body and show the name of the identification holder and their date of birth. A photo identification is not required.

Identification documents that may be used as proof of identification include:

  • Birth certificate
  • Citizenship card
  • Driver’s license
  • Government (Ontario or other) issued identification card, including health card[1]
  • Indian Status Card /Indigenous Membership Card
  • Passport
  • Permanent Resident card.

Validation of identification is considered to have been completed/successful when the name and date of birth of the presenter of the vaccination receipt and the name and date of birth on the identification document match. If the name and date of birth on both documents do not match, the individual will not be allowed to enter the business or organization.

Q:  Are there any alternatives for proof of identification that youth can show if they are not comfortable carrying around their passport or health card?

A:  The identification requirements are flexible, and identification is required to confirm only name of the person and date of birth – government identification can be used for this purpose but is not required.

Q:   Do children under 12 have to still screen?

A: 11 & under still need to screen.   The WIATC will have a list to cross reference for those without a tech device.

12+ ... need at least proof of 1 dose, ID with name & birth date, & to complete screen 

Parents are allowed to accompany their child to get them through the screening process if required. 

Q: What alternative documentation can be used if users do not have a cell phone? for screen proof & eventually the app?

A:   Printed copy of the vaccination record that matches their ID is fine. A photocopy of their ID is also fine.  If they cannot do the online screening APP, we will manually screen them when they arrive and record their name and telephone number.
