City of Regina vaccine mandate delayed by two additional months

It appears the City of Regina’s COVID-19 vaccine mandate for City owned facilities will be delayed by two months.

Originally set to take effect September 20, a City Council report now says the target date is November 15.

The City’s reasoning is, “to procure and implement the needed devices to ensure a positive experience for the public when accessing City facilities”.

When the City’s plan was originally announced they mentioned the provincial government’s plan to debut a new proof of vaccination system involving a smartphone ready QR code the same week they were going to implement their vaccination policy.

Proof of vaccination from City employees has also been delayed.
