The Provincial Health Officer (PHO) has implemented province-wide restrictions, in effect until December 7, 2020.
The increase in COVID-19 in B.C. is very concerning and we must all do our part to flatten the curve. The verbal PHO Order provides new restrictions on what we can do as individuals and what the role sport can play in keeping ourselves and our communities safe.
The PHO Order recognizes that now more than ever sport provides important physical and mental health benefits to our communities, and as such sport can continue; however, within some new parameters:
- Games, competitions, training and practice, such as those outlined in the viaSport Phase 3 Guidelines, can continue without spectators and restricted to your local community. Until the written Order and public health guidance are released we recommend that you err on the side of caution and stay close to home for now.
- Masks are required in all indoor public settings. We recommend that you err on the side of caution and wear a mask in all indoor public settings, including lockers, change rooms, etc.
- High performance athletes already training in B.C. and identified by CSI-Pacific are excluded from the sport-related restrictions.
Updates will be made as more information becomes available.
