COVID-19 Update (September 28, 2021)

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Panorama Recreation has followed the guidelines and orders set out by the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) and other governing bodies, including WorkSafeBC, Island Health, British Columbia Recreation and Parks Association (BCRPA), and the Lifesaving Society.

As we continue to follow orders from the PHO proof of vaccination with government issued ID is required for the following:

  • Indoor fitness/dance/yoga classes (12 years and older)
  • Weight room access (Restricted to 15 years and older. 13 years+ who have taken the Regional Weight Room Orientation course may attend)
  • Indoor adult sport participation and rentals – pickleball, tennis, squash hockey, shinny, etc.
    • 12-21 year old participants in sport/recreation intended for adults must provide proof of vaccination. For example, 18-year-olds attending adult stick and puck
  •  UPDATED Effective October 1, 2021, spectators at any event with more than 50 people in attendance (12 years and older)

According to the PHO we must ensure those utilizing select facilities/programs have received at least the first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine, and that as of October 24th, 2021 have received the second dose at least 7 days prior.

Proof of vaccination is not required for:

  • Pool usage including aquafit, swim lessons and lap swimming
  • Youth indoor sport participants (21 years and under)
  • Parents of youth programs to drop off, support, participate or watch
  • General facility access/use such as washrooms, change rooms and showers
  • Adult recreation programs under 50 person capacity (pottery, art)
  • Childcare and afterschool care programs
  • Skating Programs and lessons
  • Outdoor sports or gatherings

Additionally, patrons must wear a mask in common and public areas (including hallways, washrooms and change rooms) when not engaged in physical activity. NEW: This mask requirement applies to those born 2016 or earlier (5+), regardless of vaccination status.

Be sure to plan ahead and bring proof of vaccination, government-issued photo ID if 19 years and older, a mask, and allow extra time for you visit to accommodate these changes.

Please continue to follow the health guidelines of practicing careful social contact.
