Editor's Note: The COVID-19 situation, in the NHL and around the world, is constantly evolving. Readers in Canada can consult the country's public health website for the latest.

The Winnipeg Jets announced Thursday that fans will need to provide proof of vaccination against COVID-19 for both Jets and Manitoba Moose games at Canada Life Centre until April 30.

The announcement comes after the government of Manitoba announced that provincial proof of vaccination requirements are coming to an end on March 1, while mask mandates will no longer be in place by March 15.

Canada Life Centre will however become "mask-friendly" by March 15, "where mask use by guests will be strongly encouraged, but not required."

The Calgary Flames have removed the requirement for patrons to show proof of vaccination against COVID-19 to attend their home games at the Scotiabank Saddledome, while Maple Leaf Sports and Entertainment says it will discontinue its mandatory vaccination policy for fans attending its events, whether indoors or outdoors, starting March 1.
