The Ottawa Sports and Entertainment Group (OSEG) has released its COVID-19 vaccination policies for events at TD Place. People going to Ottawa 67’s games will have to show proof they’re fully vaccinated, as per league rules.

For all other ticketed events, people can either show proof they’re fully vaccinated or a negative COVID-19 test within 48 hours of the event.
