Proof of Vaccination at NRRRC

As of September 10, 2021, by order of the BC Provincial Health Officer, proof of at least one COVID-19 vaccination is required to access some events, services and businesses. The requirement applies to all people born in 2009 or earlier (12+) and will be carried out as applicable in the Northern Rockies Regional Recreation Centre.

Where Proof of Vaccine is Required in the Recreation Centre:

Effective September 13, 2021, the Northern Rockies Recreation Centre will be required to verify proof of vaccination at the Customer Service Desk for:

  • Participants in registered fitness classes;
  • Participants in NRRM-organized indoor events and programs of more than 50 persons; and;
  • Users of squash, racquetball and drop-In rock climbing facilities.

For ease, patrons may give consent at the time of registration to note proof of vaccination on your PerfectMind account.

Organizers of adult sports and fitness activities or events with more than 50 persons will be responsible for verifying proof of vaccination of their participants.

Examples of Where Proof of Vaccine is NOT Required:

You don't have to show proof of vaccination at places like:

  • Public pools
  • Indoor youth recreational sport for people 19 years or younger (this applies to coaches and volunteers of youth sports)
  • Before and after school programs for K to 12 students
