LETHBRIDGE, AB – If you plan on going to watch the Lethbridge Hurricanes play a game at the ENMAX Centre this WHL season, you’ll have to show either vaccination proof or a negative test to get in.

The WHL club made the announcement Thursday, along with the Medicine Hat Tigers and Red Deer Rebels.

All three junior hockey organizations will be implementing the “Restrictions Exemption Program”, otherwise referred to by many as a vaccine passport as of Monday, September 20th.

The Western Hockey League says either electronic or paper immunization records will be accepted.

Information posted to the Hurricanes web page states that for the foreseeable future, all spectators at the ENMAX Centre aged 12 and over will be required to show proof of one of the following for entry:

  • Full COVID-19 vaccination
  • Negative COVID-19 PCR or rapid test, from a paid private testing provider, taken within 48 hours of the event’s start time

The City of Lethbridge also announced on Friday that vaccination will be mandatory in order to attend any ticketed event at the ENMAX Centre.

You’ll need to show proof of partial vaccination as of Sept. 20 and proof of full vaccination as of Oct. 1, 2021.

ENMAX Centre General Manager Kim Gallucci says “many, if not all of the organizations looking to host events at the ENMAX Centre are requesting a mandatory vaccination policy. Given the size of our facility and the varied demographics of people coming in and out of the doors each day, we feel this is the safest and most responsible way forward.”

Masks for all spectators will still be required, which is a province-wide mandate.
