Ready to Ride Again: COVID Safety on Transit
Public transit has always helped people get to their jobs, friends, families and everything else Toronto has to offer. It’s still doing that – now safer than ever.
The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) and Metrolinx (GO Transit & UP Express) have taken significant steps to protect riders across the Toronto region from COVID-19 transmission. To date, there have been no cases in Toronto where transit has been contact-traced as the source of transmission.
In partnership with the Toronto Region Board of Trade’s We’re Ready Toronto campaign to welcome people back downtown safely and sustainably, TTC and Metrolinx are sharing the ways they’ve made it safer to ride public transit.

Proof of Vaccination Required for Interior Dining
Further to the announcement by the Ontario Government, visitors will be required to provide proof of full vaccination and provide government approved ID for dining in our food court starting Wednesday, September 22, 2021.
Visitors entering 145 King Street West for the purpose of indoor dining will need to be fully vaccinated and provide proof of vaccination (paper or PDF) along with a government issued photo ID to access the food court and dine-in at any restaurant at 145 King Street West.
Proof of vaccination documents can be downloaded here: https://covid19.ontariohealth.ca/
Individuals who cannot receive the vaccine due to medical exemptions will be permitted entry with a doctor’s note until recognized medical exemptions can be integrated as part of a digital vaccine certificate. Children who are 11 years of age and younger and unable to be vaccinated will also be exempted from these requirements.

Proof of vaccination is not required for outdoor patios, takeout and delivery from 145 King Street West food vendors.

Bird Migration Safety
Seasonal bird migrations in Ontario last from March through June, and continue again from the end of August to the beginning of November. It is common for flocks of birds to be attracted to lights from buildings and, sadly, millions of birds are injured or killed due to collisions with buildings (source: flap.org). While we understand that manypeople continue to work from home, please assist us where you can to help make our QuadReal office buildings flight-safe for birds.
The following are some simple and helpful techniques we're doing that you too can do for both your home – especially in high-rise towers - and office settings:
·When working late and, when localized light controls are available, please use task lighting (table or desk lamps) instead of overhead lights
·Close window curtains and blinds at night
·Turnoff non-critical exterior lighting during spring and fall bird migration seasons
·If surrounding greenery is reflected in your windows, consider a bird-deterrent window solution or move greenery away from windows
·Report a fallen bird at your home or workplace by calling Flap Canada at: 416.366.3527 or [email protected]
