The advent of the Quebec vaccine passport has obliged the North Shore Municipalities to adjust their activities to require it. Both Rosemère and Deux-Montagnes have new directives for its use.
In order to be aligned with public health directives, the City of Deux-Montagnes is obliged to require the vaccination passport (and identity with photo) to citizens aged 13 and over wishing to participate in the physical and sports activities offered by the City. This measure, came into force from September 1, is in addition to the other health measures already in place (wearing a face cover, physical distancing, etc.).
The vaccination passport is not required for children 12 years of age and under. On the other hand, it will be required for accompanying parents who participate in the activity with the child (for example, during a swimming lesson where the presence of the parent in the water is necessary).
