As transmission of COVID 19 increases, primarily among unvaccinated individuals and in part due to the Delta variant, the provincial health officer has re-instated the mandatory mask requirement for indoor public spaces. In addition, on September 13, proof of one vaccination will be required for people to attend indoor organized gatherings such as conferences, meetings and workshops. Proof of your second dose will be required by October 24.
I know our members were excited at the thought of returning to in-person events as evidenced by the speed in which our upcoming golf tournaments sold out. As we continue to review the rules and recommendations for in-person gatherings our number one priority is our member’s health and safety.
We remain committed to updating the UDI website regularly as well as distributing our normal email blasts directly to members. I know you have heard this before, but I want to stress the importance of the health protocol advice from the Provincial Health Officer: wear your mask, get your shots, and follow this link to find out more about BC’s vaccine card.
