It can’t be said enough – your health and the health of our employees is our number one priority. We’ve created a working group specifically dedicated to responding to COVID-19 and to implementing the recommendations of the public health authorities. We’re also collaborating with the industry at large to produce the highest safety standards worldwide.   

We’ve thoroughly examined each aspect of the experience – from the time you make your reservation to the time you leave the spa – and made the necessary adjustments to ensure your safety. We’re implementing a contactless experience as much as possible, reducing capacity to ensure physical distancing, screening our guests for symptoms on-site and requiring proof of vaccination.

Yes, starting September 1, 2021, you will need a vaccination passport or an equivalent adequate proof of vaccination to visit the spa. To learn more about the vaccination passport, visit the Government of Quebec’s dedicated website. 

 

Please note that you must wait 7 days (14 days for Janssen) after your second dose of the vaccine before visiting the spa.

The Government of Quebec defines a vaccination passport as:  

“The COVID-19 vaccination passport [is] a free official tool showing that the holder is protected against COVID-19. It [makes] it possible for businesses to stay open. 

With a vaccine passport, people age 13 and up who are adequately protected or who have a clinical contraindication to COVID-19 vaccination can gain admittance to certain locations and certain non-essential activities where the risk of transmission is high.”  

To meet the requirements set by the Government of Quebec to be adequately protected, residents of Quebec must be vaccinated.

Those residing outside of Quebec—Ontario or elsewhere—must: “show photo ID and proof issued by their country or Canadian province that they have had two doses of one of the following recognized vaccines: 

  • Pfizer 
  • Moderna 
  • AstraZeneca 
  • Covishield 
  • Janssen (only one dose required).”
