Volleyball at Parkinson Recreation Centre

Following the guidance of the BC Provincial Health Officer and the Interior Health Authority Public Health Officer, all adult sport program participants (ages 22+) are required to provide proof of full vaccination (2 doses), along with a valid government ID, before entering a program facility.

Officials, coaches and volunteers for adult sport also need to provide proof of full (two dose) vaccination as per regional restrictions. Masks are required in common areas at all indoor facilities and can be removed when participants are actively engaged in a sport activity on the field of play. Learn more about additional Provincial and regional restrictions currently in place through the Interior Health Authority. 

Participants will be able to enter through appropriate program area doors no earlier than 15 min prior to program start and should leave immediately upon completion of the program. A Program Instructor or Facility Monitor will meet participants at the entry door and verify full (two dose) vaccination status.
