    Default No COVID shots means no shooting?

    A couple of friends who belong to an indoor shooting range tell me they've received notice from the range operators that proof of immunization will be required effective September 22.

    The regulation would appear to apply to indoor shooting ranges as they would fall under the definition of "recreational facilities."

    As of September 22, 2021, Ontarians will need to be fully vaccinated (two doses plus 14 days) and provide their proof of vaccination along with photo ID to access certain public settings and facilities. This approach focuses on higher-risk indoor public settings where face coverings cannot always be worn and includes:

    • ​Restaurants and bars (excluding outdoor patios, as well as delivery and takeout);
    • Nightclubs (including outdoor areas of the establishment);
    • Meeting and event spaces, such as banquet halls and conference/convention centres;
    • Facilities used for sports and fitness activities and personal fitness training, such as gyms, fitness and recreational facilities with the exception of youth recreational sport;
    • Sporting events;
    • Casinos, bingo halls and gaming establishments;
    • Concerts, music festivals, theatres and cinemas;
    • Strip clubs, bathhouses and sex clubs;
    • Racing venues (e.g., horse racing).
    None of this applies to outdoor ranges only indoors. Some clubs have mixed facilities with both indoor and outdoor ranges and others have shooting positions that are with the exception of firing ports fully enclosed.

    Any other clubs with indoor ranges issuing these notices?

    If you read farther down not applicable to outdoor ranges.....These mandatory requirements would not apply to outdoor settings where the risk of transmission is lower,

    Which will affect most hunters as they get ready for the fall hunt.

    As noted in my original post above.

    Interesting. With the Toronto Police Services court action and many others pending it would mean no range time for them a swell.
    It will not play out well for the proponents of "show me your papers"....lol
