COVID-19 Updates: State of public health emergency declared.

Restrictions Exemption Program supports

Implementation grant information for eligible businesses and free employee safety training as part of this program.


The Restrictions Exemption Program allows businesses, entities and organizers to operate without most public health restrictions if they require patrons aged 12 and older to provide proof of vaccination or negative test result.

Financial support is now available to help offset costs of implementing the program:

  • The Restrictions Exemption Program Implementation Grant provides a one-time payment to eligible businesses, cooperatives and non-profit organizations that choose to implement the Restrictions Exemption Program.
  • Free online safety training is also available to provide workers with information and resources they need to keep themselves and customers safe while implementing COVID-19 safety requirements.
