COVID policy update: members required to be fully vaccinated to attend club events

SKABC's leadership agrees with the spirit of BC's Provincial Health Guidelines and our COVID policies will continue to evolve accordingly.

In December, the Directors voted unanimously to require that members be fully vaccinated to attend club events in-person. Vaccination status has been added to the signup forms for our indoor and outdoor events. This policy will be in effect until further notice.

This decision came after observation and feedback from the past two seasons. When we gather with club members to paddle, we are with others outside of our usual social circle so it is important to follow the current provincial COVID-19 regulations and guidelines; however, wearing a mask on the water may be unsafe and ineffective. Risk of infection may increase as we help each other with equipment, perform assisted rescues, practice skills, eat, travel, or socialize.
