The building which sat empty aside from us in the media and then limited to health care workers during the playoffs will be at full capacity for next season according to a True North statement today. The Canada Life Centre which is home to the Winnipeg Jets and Manitoba Moose (as well as to concerts) will see fans return for the 2021-22 season.
However in order to get in the building TNSE has enacted the following policy:
True North Sports + Entertainment would like to confirm that our entertainment venues will be selling to full capacity, and that we will require all employees, event staff, and guests to provide proof of full vaccination. The majority of our season seat holders have shared with us that having a proof of COVID-19 vaccination policy for Canada Life Centre and Burton Cummings Theatre is important to them.

Scott Billeck of the Winnipeg Sun with this helpful tip for those curious about a vaccination timeline in order to get into the home opener:
If you’re an unvaccinated #NHLJets fan and want to get into the building for their Sept. 26 preseason game, you need to get your first dose by Sunday. 28 days between doses plus 14 days past the second dose. It’s a 42-day span to become fully vaccinated. Winnipeg’s first regular-season home game is on Oct. 21, meaning you’d need to get your first dose by Sept. 9 to be eligible to attend.
