Recent updates on the PHO restrictions

 

With the Dec 22, 2021 updates on the PHO restrictions, I am sure a lot of you have a lot of questions and would need some clarification.  We know things are not exactly black and white at the moment and is difficult for all of us to navigate the latest updates to the PHO Order.

We had a zoom call with viaSport and these are the updates from them that we would like to share with everyone.

"We want to stress the intention of the Order: to allow sport to continue in a paired-back version where we will need to exercise our best judgment on how to proceed as safe as possible. We also understand there seems to be differences between sport, fitness and recreation, and in light of that, we need to proceed with extra caution because none of us want decisions in sport to be the reason for further restrictions.
 
For example, now is not the time for certain types of activities or competitions to proceed (eg regional tournaments, social events, inter-provincial travel, etc). Our aim at this time should be to make sure that the decisions we make preserves the core activities of sport so that it can continue as much as possible.
 
As promised, here are further details we’ve managed to confirm regarding Sport, Recreation and Fitness. I want to start by highlighting what has been updated from our call earlier today. You can also find that our updated chart here: www.viasport.ca/return-to-sport-2021

 

  • Activities that take place in a sport environment are allowed, but this does not include fitness centers or workout gyms.
  • Coaching courses, or other similar activities, are subject to 50% of the occupancy rate of the space.

Update on VLTBC Junior A Tournament

After much deliberation around the safety and liability, both Badminton BC (BBC) and Vancouver Lawn, Tennis & Badminton Club (VLTCB) has agreed to postpone the upcoming Junior A tournament scheduled for September 24-26, 2021 to protect our members and their families during these uncertain times.  Badminton BC has been advised by government and ViaSport to follow the PHO Order.  The Order can be found here: https://www2.gov.bc.ca/assets/gov/health/about-bc-s-health-care-system/office-of-the-provincial-health-officer/covid-19/covid-19-pho-order-gatherings-events.pdf
 
VLTBC have their own concerns about hosting the tournament.  Both organizations are keen for a return to sport and to collaborate on a future date.  The event will be rescheduled when the PHO Order allows all our members, players, supporters, and staff to participate safely.  Thank you to those who registered already – we will process your refunds right away.  Confirmed future events will be announced soon. 

If you have any questions, please contact members@badmintonbc.com
