Trent Athletics Centre Requires Proof of Vaccination for All Trent Students and Members
October 22, 2021
As of Tuesday, October 26, Trent Athletics Centre will require all Trent students to show their proof of vaccination each time they visit.
Since September 22, proof of vaccination for Trent students attending the Athletics Centre was confirmed through a secure data transfer from the myTrent Vaccine Profile. This was a temporary measure to confirm proof of vaccination until the provincial enhanced vaccination certificate with QR code became available.
Options to provide proof of vaccination for Trent students, staff, faculty, community members and visitors are as follows:
- Enhanced vaccine certificate with QR code
- Electronic copy of vaccine receipt (showing 2 doses)
- Paper copy of vaccine receipt (showing 2 doses)
Regardless of method, individuals must also present a piece of photo identification.
For those individuals who choose to use the enhanced vaccine certificate, the QR code will be scanned using the provincial government authorized app, Verify Ontario, to ensure that individuals meet eligibility for being fully vaccinated. Please note that this app does not collect, retain, or store any personal data.
All students, staff and faculty must also continue to complete, and pass, Trent’s mandatory screening each day before coming to campus.
Individuals wishing to visit the Planet Café will not be required to show proof of vaccination to gain access. However, all Trent students, staff, and faculty must be fully vaccinated by October 23 or have an approved accommodation to continue coming to campus.
