VACCINATION POLICY/POLITIQUE DE VACCINATION: Discover Fitness/Discover Performance Inc. cares about its clients and customers, its staff, and the community at large. The past year has been an extremely difficult one for the innumerable people and businesses impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. With accelerated Covid-19 vaccination rollout across Ontario, we are preparing for a full return to in-person use of our facilities, while prioritizing health and safety. It is within the spirit of goodwill and commitment to our clients, customers, staff and community that we have decided to implement a vaccination policy for everyone entering our facility or otherwise using our services. Assuming Ontario’s vaccine supply allows, Discover Fitness/Discover Performance Inc. will require anyone entering our facility or using our services to have received both doses of the Covid-19 vaccine. Those who cannot be vaccinated on the basis of medical or other protected grounds under the Ontario Human Rights Code may request accommodation, which will be determined on a case by case basis. Discover Fitness/Discover Performance Inc. strongly encourages all members of the community to get vaccinated as soon as they can. We will continue with a wide range of Covid-19 health and safety measures, including masking and self-screening requirements, enhanced cleaning protocols, and physical distancing as required. This policy is subject to provincial and public health requirements, which continue to evolve. / Discover Fitness/Discover Performance Inc. se soucie de ses clients, de son personnel et de la communauté en général. L'année écoulée a été extrêmement difficile pour les innombrables personnes et entreprises touchées par la pandémie de COVID-19. Avec le déploiement accéléré de la vaccination contre le COVID-19 dans tout l'Ontario, nous nous préparons à un retour complet à l'utilisation en personne de nos installations, tout en priorisant la santé et la sécurité. C'est dans un esprit de bonne volonté et d'engagement envers nos clients, notre personnel et notre communauté que nous avons décidé de mettre en œuvre une politique de vaccination pour toute personne entrant dans notre établissement. Discover Fitness/Discover Performance Inc. encourage fortement tous les membres de la communauté à se faire vacciner dès qu'ils le peuvent. Nous continuerons avec les mesures de santé et de sécurité COVID-19, y compris les exigences de masquage et d'auto-dépistage, des protocoles de nettoyage et une distanciation physique si nécessaire. Cette politique est assujettie aux exigences provinciales et de santé publique, qui continuent d'évoluer.
