UBC STUDENT RECREATION CENTRE CLOSED

The Province has announced two new Provincial Health Orders to stop the spread of COVID-19, both of which require mandatory changes to dojo operations as outlined below:
MANDATORY MASKS IN INDOOR PUBLIC SETTINGS
Effective Wednesday, August 25, 2021 people 12 and older must wear masks in indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status. This order requires members to wear masks in the dojo and all other common areas (reception, hallways, stairwells, elevators, changerooms, entering and exiting recreational facilities).
For this Order, a mask or face covering is defined as a medical or non-medical mask that covers the nose and mouth. Face shields are not a substitute for a mask, as there is an opening below the mouth.
PROOF OF VACCINATION
By order of the PHO, Proof of Vaccination will be required by Monday, September 13, 2021 for some activities including:
Recreational facilities, pools and fitness centers
Indoor high-intensity group exercise
Indoor and outdoor dining at restaurants, pubs and bars
Indoor organized gatherings like weddings, parties, conferences and meetings
As a result, members, instructors and guests ages 12+ will need to provide Proof of Vaccination status to access the dojo, no exceptions.
Starting September 13, 2021 members must have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine and be fully vaccinated by October 24, 2021. The requirement is in place until January 31, 2022, and is subject to extension.
Members can expect instructions for providing vaccination status soon. Information relating to an individual's vaccination status will remain confidential and will not be disclosed, except as required by law.

Please, help to keep your dojo safe.
