September 13, 2021FAQ: The BC Vaccine Card at the RCA

In accordance with regulations issued by the Office of the Provincial Health Officer, beginning September 13, 2021, the Rotary Centre for the Arts will be requiring that certain visitors provide proof of their COVID-19 vaccination status using the BC Vaccine Card. Full information on the Vaccine Card can be found through the Provincial Health Officer’s website. To help our patrons, tenants, and community members better understand who will and will not be required to provide proof of vaccination, and in what circumstances, the RCA has prepared the following FAQ. We have also prepared an FAQ regarding mask use at the RCA. This information is also available as a PDF through our Communicable Diseases Plan page
