BC Rugby COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccine Policy

COVID-19 MANDATORY VACCINATION POLICY

BC Rugby has introduced a COVID-19 Mandatory Vaccination Policy, in conjunction with Rugby Canada and other provincial unions, for all BC Rugby participants. The Policy has been introduced to ensure the safety of all BC Rugby participants, the Rugby community, and the general public.

The Policy has been approved by the BC Rugby Board and came into effect as of October 27, 2021, and was updated on February 16, 2022. The Policy requires all BC Rugby Members aged 12 and over to be fully vaccinated to participate in any sanctioned in-person Rugby activity, including indoor and outdoor training, scrimmages, matches and education courses. This applies to all players, coaches, officials, team staff and volunteers but excludes spectators.

How To Upload Proof of Vaccination Status

To comply with this Policy, all BC Rugby Members aged 12+ intending to participate in sanctioned Rugby activity must submit proof of vaccination.

Any participant aged 19 or over will have to submit Government-issued photo ID along with their proof of vaccination. Documents vary depending on whether you have been vaccinated within British Columbia, in another province or another country. See below for Documentation examples.

All participants must give consent for BC Rugby to record their vaccination verification. Once documents have been uploaded to Sportlomo and approved, Members will receive confirmation and BC Rugby will delete the uploaded files.

Parents/Guardians who are giving consent and submitting vaccination verification on behalf of their children must do so for each child.
