Recent updates made to the BC Provincial Health Officer’s Order on Gatherings and Events released on November 16, 2021, have several implications around proof of vaccination for sport including,

  • Any unpaid supervisor/coach/volunteer that is supervising or assisting with indoor youth sport must show proof of vaccination (two doses).
    • This includes those who receive an honorarium and are not an employee.
    • This includes parents assisting with their child’s participation.
  • Proof of vaccination is not required for outdoor sport, except where regional restrictions apply.
  • Swimming pools are exempt from the proof of vaccination requirement.
    • Non-employed supervisors must show proof of vaccination.
    • Parents assisting their child in the pool do not need to show proof of vaccination.
