NORTHERN, ONTARIO  ~~~~~~~  September 22  2021 (LSNews)    As of Sept. 22, residents looking to visit the following indoor settings will need to show proof of being fully vaccinated for at least 14 days or a legitimate medical exemption along with a piece of identification:
Restaurants, bars, nightclubs, concert venues, gyms and fitness facilities, theatres, cinemas, racetracks, waterparks, TV and film productions with studio audiences, sports venues, casinos and gaming establishments, meeting and event spaces, strip clubs and bathhouses.

These places are considered the to be the riskiest places to get COVID.
Restaurant owners do not think the government should be forcing businesses and restaurants to police their laws.

“If any of them feel threatened, we want them to call 9-1-1 as soon as possible,” said Christine Elliott. But she, along with other municipal leaders, are downplaying the potential for mass discontent over the vaccination policies.

The Ontario Association of Police Chiefs is echoing that call, adding it will be up to Ministry of Labour inspectors and bylaw officers to handle the majority of citations.

“Police officers will not be going and asking individuals for status of their certification,” said OACP spokesperson Joe Couto. “That’s not our job.”

The bad news is Pfizer and Moderna say COVID-19 vaccine protection wanes after six to eight months 

Ahead of an FDA meeting on COVID vaccine boosters, Pfizer submitted a study suggesting vaccine efficacy fades over time naturally, 'irrespective of variant'
Pfizer and Moderna said that protection from their COVID-19 vaccines can wane over time, as the U.S. drug regulator prepares to consider whether to approve a booster program.

When it comes to funerals, weddings and other religious ceremonies or rites, proof of vaccination will not be required so long as that person is not going to any associated social gatherings (such as receptions). Specific to funerals is an exemption to attend a social gathering if it’s being held in a funeral home or another facility approved under the Funeral, Burial and Cremation Services Act.

Premier Ford stated in this video that "Let me be very clear.
This is a temporary and exceptional measure 
We will only use these certificates for as long as they are needed on not one day longer
