COVID-19 Policies

Martyrs' Shrine has the well-being of our community and visitors as our highest priority. We want everyone to feel safe while visiting and staying with us. While we are not requiring mask use at this time, we are strongly recommending it as many of our guests are vulnerable to COVID-19.

Sanitization stations will be made available at all of our indoor facilities, including the Shrine Church.

Adapted Measures

Martyrs' Shrine operates within the provincial regulations governing COVID-19 protocols in Ontario as well as our own health and safety policies. Please see the following information on how we have adapted our services:

Dining: The restaurant is closed for the season. Food and beverage will be made available instead at the Gift Shop as the new home of our café.

Shopping: Our Gift Shop and Café is operating as per usual.

Lodging: Our Guesthouse and Hostel is operating as per usual.

Outdoor Attractions: Outdoor activities will be operating as per usual.

Indoor Activities: Some policies may be enforced in these venues.

On-Site Protocols

  • Although masks are not required, they are strongly recommended while indoors.
  • Although not required, we strongly recommend you maintain 6 feet physical separation from others at all times.
  • Please respect and follow instructions provided by the Shrine staff.

Visit Mid-Week

Whatever day of the week, Martyrs' Shrine is a beautiful place to visit. To avoid crowds and lineups, consider visiting mid-week. You will enjoy the benefit of increased availability and lower wait times when it comes to many of the site attractions and activities
