SAANICH VACCINE MANDATE FOR VOLUNTEERS
In order to protect the health and ensure the safety of volunteers, as of January 10, 2022 the District of Saanich will require all volunteers to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19. Being fully vaccinated means you have received the full series of a COVID-19 vaccine acceptable to the BC Centre for Disease Control standards.
UPDATE APRIL 8, 2022: The Contractors and Volunteers Covid-19 Vaccination Policy is suspended as of April 8, 2022. New volunteers will still be required to provide vaccination status when they are on-boarded. This helps maintains confidence that the majority of our volunteers are vaccinated and ensures the District can respond quickly should we need to reactivate the policy if circumstances change.
We will not be asking to see your vaccine passport, rather we are asking you attest to being vaccinated. Accommodations will be made for those individuals who can’t be vaccinated for reasons protected by the BC Human Rights Code.
Protocols such as hand sanitizing, physical distancing and mask wearing will continue to be in place. For more information please contact the Coordinator of Volunteers for Parks, Recreation & Community Services; Julie van den Born Julie.email@example.com
