Requirement for Proof of Vaccination in Certain Settings: Frequently Asked Questions

https://news.ontario.ca/en/backgrounder/1000780/new-requirement-for-proof-of-vaccination-in-certain-settings-frequently-asked-questions

Is transportation available to get to clinics?

  • Call 211 and ask about transportation.
  • GTR Transportation: https://bit.ly/2SvZcZ8 for routes and fares.
  • Do you have a physical disability or mobility issue and no access to safe transportation during COVID-19? The Accessible Drive to Vaccines Program provides door-to-door rides to vaccination sites for people with disabilities, including seniors with mobility issues, who face challenges accessing safe transportation. For more information or to Request a Ride.

Who is eligible for a third dose?

On August 17, 2021, the province announced updates to many vaccine strategies, including Ontario’s Updated COVID-19 Vaccination Eligibility (third dose and more to select qualifying groups) – Public Health will not be administering these vaccines. Your physician or specialist will be in touch to schedule the vaccine. Do not call to try to get one.  Proof of qualification will be required to get this 3rd dose.

Eligible groups are:

  • Transplant recipients (including solid organ transplant and hematopoietic stem cell transplants)
  • Patients with hematological cancers (examples include lymphoma, myeloma, leukemia) on active treatment (chemotherapy, targeted therapies, immunotherapy) for malignant hematologic disorders
  • Recipients of an anti-CD20 agent (e.g. rituximab, ocrelizumab, ofatumumab)
  • Residents of high-risk congregate settings including long-term care homes, higher-risk licensed retirement homes and First Nations elder care lodges

Do I still have to practice public health measures like wearing a mask and physical distancing after I’m vaccinated?

Yes. Until a vaccine is widely available and a large percentage of the population becomes immune to COVID-19, we all have to continue to follow public health measures and rules for our region and continue to take everyday actions to help stop the spread of the virus. Why?

  • While the vaccine(s) offers protection against COVID-19, there is not sufficient data yet on prevention of transmission.
  • It takes time for a vaccine to develop its protective effects (i.e. a month or longer).
  • We are still experiencing high COVID-19 infection rates, which has placed intense strain on our hospitals and health systems, as well as the health care workers who have been on the front lines of this crisis for many months.
  • Not everyone will get the vaccine, meaning there will still be a risk of transmission.
  • For more information: About COVID-19 Vaccines (publichealthgreybruce.on.ca)

For these reasons it is important that everyone, including those who have been vaccinated, continue to physical distance, wear a mask when we can, and wash/sanitize our hands frequently.

Borrow the internet

Hanover Public Library is launching a new technology service with the help of local Hanover business, Electrical Contacts Limited.

You can now “borrow the internet” with your library card! The library has purchased 6 Kajeet SmartSpots to lend to library members who may not have internet at home or lack reliable broadband internet.

The Kajeet SmartSpot is a portable wireless hotspot that you can borrow from the Library. It can provide free internet access using the Bell or Rogers cellular network to Wi-Fi enabled smartphones, tablets, and PCs. They are perfect for you to use at home, away, or on-the-go anywhere in Ontario!

Library customers just need a Wi-Fi-ready device, such as a smartphone, tablet, or laptop to use this electronic device.

What is a SmartSpot?

A SmartSpot is a small portable device that connects your laptops, smartphones, tablets or other wireless-capable devices to the internet through a mobile phone network. Just as you can use the wireless network in the library, you can now carry that connection with you to access the internet on the go. The Kajeet SmartSpot comes in a kit. The kit includes a SmartSpot, a charging cable and power adaptor along with instructions for connecting and troubleshooting.

What Can I do with a SmartSpot?

Connect multiple devices to the internet, wherever you are! Work, learn or communicate online.

Where will it work? Anywhere in Ontario that is covered by the Bell or Rogers cellular network. So you can use it in the park, at the cottage, while you travel or at home.

Shoes for lost Indigenous children

Shoes on library steps in memorial for Indigenous children.

Across Canada, people are expressing their horror and outrage at the discovery of 215 unidentified Indigenous children buried at a residential school in Kamloops. This heartbreaking news comes just before the start of June, which is Indigenous History Month.

Hanover Public Library and The Town of Hanover wish to support the nationwide movement to mourn these children through placing shoes on the steps of our Civic Centre as a memorial. Anyone wishing to contribute to this expression of grief may place shoes to honour these 215 and all Indigenous children who lost their lives when they should have been safe and cared for. And also to acknowledge the continuing pain of their families and all survivors of residential school.

Family visiting memorial on library steps.

This visible image honouring the young victims lost is intended to raise awareness of these atrocities, act as a focal point for mourning all the vanished children, and as a promise to do better in our future dealings with First Nations and all Indigenous people.

Arranging Pickup

Pickup is by appointment only.

Pickup times will be arranged in advance by library staff (call us) or through the online booking system Appointlet.

How to make a pick up appointment with the online booking system Appointlet

  • When you receive your e-mail notification that an item you had placed on hold is ready for pick-up, there will be a link to the library’s Appointlet system. Click on the link.
  • Enter your name and e-mail address. Select a time you wish to pick up.

Curbside Pickup Process

At the appointed pick-up time, physical distancing measures must be complied with. Staff will be wearing gloves, masks and other protective gear for everyone’s safety.

Please arrive at the agreed time. Pick up will take place outdoors on the east (Clock Tower) side of the building.

If driving, remain in your vehicle, and open trunk or a rear window away from the people inside. Staff will bring your materials, marked with your name. Nod to confirm that is your parcel. Staff will place it in your vehicle.

If you are walking, cycling, or using other means to travel to the library, please wait by curbside pickup sign. Your items will be placed on a table with your name showing, then staff will return to the building. Once staff are inside the building, you may pick up your package from the table.

Maintain at least 6′ (2m) distance from others, and we request that you wear a face covering.

Returning borrowed items

Returning items must be returned through the library drop box beside the West (10th Avenue) entrance only. This is to keep the items separate, to be quarantined until they are safe to handle. 

No returns will be accepted at the pick up appointment.

COVID-19 Precautions and Disclaimer

  • The COVID-19 virus can survive up to 24 hours on cardboard and up to 2-3 days on plastic and stainless steel. As books cannot be effectively cleaned and disinfected at home, it may be wise to store books for a minimum of 24 hours before handling them.
  • Patrons who are immune compromised or otherwise susceptible to COVID-19 infection should not take out items from the library.
  • Patrons should wash hands before and after handling books and other items, avoid touching their faces while reading and avoid sneezing or coughing onto the page while reading.
  • Items returned to the library are disinfected (covers only) and quarantined for 24 hours on return.
  • Staff handling items to go out to members will wear masks and gloves.

Please note:  These services are subject to Provincial reopening guidelines, local health advice and municipal guidelines.  If the situation changes the service may be suspended or changed. We will keep people informed through local newspaper, radio, Wightman TV, emails and social media.
