Please note the following information that we have received from viaSport.
1) PROOF OF VACCINE FOR 12 YEAR VOLUNTEERS: In the order on Gatherings and Events, the PHO has amended the definition of “vaccinated” to include an accommodation for those 12 year olds who have only received one dose. This allows those youth who aren’t yet eligible for their second dose to participate and/or spectate as long as they can show proof of one dose. The viaSport chart and FAQ now reflect these updates.
2) Participants not feeling well: It is requested that we all amplify the message that people should be staying home if they are not feeling well or have any symptoms of COVID-19. This reminder is key to keeping our sport environments safe, especially now that the isolation period has been shortened for vaccinated people.
Should you have any questions, please contact BC Hockey.
