Under the Provincial Health Order issued on September 13th, 2021, the BC Vaccine Card program came into effect. Proof of vaccination is now required to access some events, services and businesses. The Order requires all individuals born in 2009 or earlier (12+) have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. By October 24, individuals must be fully vaccinated. The requirement is in place until January 31, 2022, and could be extended based on case counts and hospitolizations.
For full information on Proof of Vaccination and the BC Vaccine Card, please visit the BC Government website.
HOW DOES THE ORDER IMPACT SPORT AND PARTICIPATION IN THE PROVINCE?
As public health protocols continue to evolve across BC, viaSport will continue to provide information and updates for the sport community on how sport activities can run safely. On September 29th, viaSport provided an update to the Return to Sport Restart 2.0 chart (below), including specific information around proof of vaccination and geographic restrictions currently in place.
