Curling Canada removes vaccine requirement from national championships
With the Canadian government recently easing COVID-19 policies and restrictions, Curling Canada has informed its member associations that it is removing the required proof of COVID-19 vaccination policy for all of its championships and events. The requirement had been in place as of early September, 2022
As a result, Curl BC has updated its own vaccination policy for the 2022-23 competitive season.
Curl BC removed the previous clarification we announced to teams entering this season’s BC Men’s (Brier), Women’s (Scotties), U21, U18, Seniors, Club, W/C, Mixed and Mixed Doubles in September, 2022.
Based on Curling Canada’s updated policy, each player and coach will no longer need to show proof of at least two Covid-19 vaccinations. Competitors and Coaches will not be required to declare that they have received 2 or more vaccinations when completing the Competitors/Coach Forms and Requirements part of the registration process in Sideline/Curling I/O and will not be asked to provide proof of vaccination at any 2022-23 Curl BC competition.
As always, Curl BC will update its stakeholders should there be any changes to these requirements.
