Updated Return to Sport Chart | Youth Tournaments Allowed Starting Feb. 1st

BC’s Public Health Officer has announced that as of February 1, 2022, sports tournaments for youth 21 or younger will be allowed to resume with proof of vaccination requirements in place for spectators (ages 12+) and all non-employee tournament support personnel. Spectators will remain at 50% capacity. As for adult (22+) tournaments, they will remain on pause for now.

viaSport has updated the Return to Sport 2.0 chart and FAQ document to reflect current PHO guidance for sport.

Other important reminders:

COVID-19 safety plans aren’t required for the volunteer sport environment, but clubs must follow their facilities’ guidance/plans and should consider having a communicable disease plan in place. Sport organizations that are also workplaces must follow WorkSafe guidance and make their COVID-19 safety plans publicly available. The PHO has updated its Workplace Safety order here.

The BC CDC has the latest information on what to do if you test positive.

The additional restrictions in Northern Health and Fraser East Order have recently ended. All regions in the province are the same for sport, which means there are no more region-specific health orders.
