As of March 21, 2022, Ontario has continued the gradual ease of public health measures and the Meridian Community Centre, as a recreation facility, will no longer require proof of vaccination or masks for entry. Masks are strongly encouraged to be worn, and visitors are reminded to stay home if feeling unwell.

The Meridian Community Centre is a designated Active Living Centre, with many programs for residents 55+. Some programs have begun to start up in person, following Government and Public Health Guidelines. For those who are not quite ready to return to in person programs, the Town of Pelham has a variety of virtual programs to stay active and social.
