اخبارالعرب 24-كندا:الجمعة 15 أكتوبر 2021 08:33 صباحاً Ontario is making COVID-19 vaccine certificate QR codes available for download during the next three days, beginning Friday morning with those born between January and April.

An update added to the Ontario Health site last night says that the three-day rollout is intended to ensure a "smooth user experience."

Fully vaccinated Ontarians with a birthday in the first four months of the year were able to download their QR code as of 6 a.m. ET today.

The next phases of the initial rollout include:

  • May to August: Oct. 16
  • September to December: Oct. 17

As of 6 a.m. on Oct. 18, the site says, enhanced vaccine certificates will be available for all fully vaccinated Ontarians to download.

Roughly 83.2 per cent of those eligible in the province have now had two doses of vaccine.

Ontario Premier Doug Ford and Health Minister Christine Elliott are set to reveal further details about the QR code certificate system at a news conference at 11 a.m. ET. You can watch it live in this story.

Yesterday afternoon, the province's vaccine verification app for businesses, Verify Ontario, went live online, rolling out on the Google and Apple app stores.

According to its description, the app gives businesses and organizations the ability to scan the QR codes on provincially issued digital vaccine certificates. After the code is scanned, a green checkmark will appear indicating a valid vaccine certificate, a red X for an invalid certificate or a yellow warning for a QR that cannot be read.

Under Ontario's program, only those who have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19 — or have a valid medical exemption from a doctor — can access certain settings, such as theatres, nightclubs and restaurant dining rooms.

On Wednesday, CBC News first reported that the Ontario government will announce plans next week to exit the Roadmap to Reopen

The further easing of pandemic measures will include ending capacity limits in all locations where proof-of-vaccination requirements are in place, such as restaurants, bars and gyms, a senior official in the government said.
