Certification based on vaccination or testing is now mandatory in certain settings. Visitors to these settings are required to have completed a full-course of COVID-19 vaccination with two doses of an approved vaccine or one of the single-dose Janssen vaccine; or be exempt from requirements to be vaccinated; or have taken a lateral flow device test or polymerase chain reaction test which has returned a negative result within 48 hours before visiting the venue or event.
