End of the vaccination passport requirement for access to cultural venues
The vaccine passport will be completely lifted as of March 14 in Quebec. Wearing a mask remains mandatory.
Today, the Quebec government announced the end of the vaccination passport requirement for access to cultural venues as of March 14, 2022.
"Quebec is therefore rolling out a plan to gradually withdraw proof of vaccination: as of tomorrow, it will no longer be required to enter the SAQ, the SQDC and superstores. As of February 21, the vaccination passport will no longer be required in places of worship. It will be completely lifted as of March 14." (translated from La Presse)
Validations will be carried out with the CNESST regarding the impact of this relaxation on workers. With regard to the health measures in effect, it is up to the organizations to make the necessary legal verifications if they choose to require the vaccination passport to authorize access to a place or an activity that is not covered by the decrees and orders in effect.
The relaxation of health measures and related details will be confirmed once the ministerial decree has been adopted. The official information will then be made available in the Summary table of openings and suspensions of activities in the cultural milieu during the COVID-19 period.
