Effective Monday September 13, the Vaccine Passport system will be implemented for businesses across BC.
Starting this Monday please bring one of the following when you come to workout: BC Vaccine Card QR code on phone, BC Vaccine Card QR code printout or BC immunization record. As per government policy, BC immunization records will only be accepted until September 26. After that time only QR Code BC Vaccine Cards will be accepted.
If you are unsure how to register for the BC Vaccine Card, please click the following link:
We are currently working on a system where the QR Code is scanned once with the verification app and a note is put in our software so it doesn’t have be be scanned on every visit. We will not be collecting copies of vaccine cards.
For the first week please be prepared to show proof of vaccine for each visit.
As this program is so new, please have patience with our staff as we learn to work through the issues and implement it. We’re hoping the end result will be a safer place to exercise with fewer restrictions and no shutdowns.
August 24, 2021
In the past 24 hours two new Covid-19 measures have been introduced by the BC Public Health Office that affect fitness centres.
First, mandatory masks have been re-introduced to all indoor businesses (including fitness) effective tomorrow Wednesday August 25. However, in the order it states that masks may be removed when exercising. As this is a very sudden and unexpected change, we will give our members a few days to start abiding to this new rule.
Secondly, vaccine passports were announced yesterday. Anyone wishing to use a fitness facility, among many other businesses, must show proof of vaccination. The details of this program are still being worked out but on September 13 only those who have had one or both Covid shots may enter. Effective October 24 all those wishing to workout must have both vaccinations. We will pass along more details as they become available.
Please be advised that whether one agrees or disagrees with these new measures, they are regulations put into place that businesses MUST follow to remain open. We appreciate everyone’s understanding and support. Stay Safe.
