Anyone who wants to attend social, cultural and sporting events in British Columbia (including programming at the Sorrento Centre) will need to show proof of vaccination against COVID. The new rules announced today require everyone who wants to participate in organized events to have their first jab by September 13 and to be fully vaccinated with the second vaccination by October 24.
The Sorrento Centre is monitoring public health rules and guidelines. We are committed to the health and well-being of our guests, staff and neighbours. We are continually updating our protocols to ensure that we meet and exceed public health and WorkSafeBC standards.
“I am grateful to every single person who has taken the time to receive their COVID-19 vaccine,” said Dr. Bonnie Henry, B.C.’s provincial health officer, in the announcement on Aug 23. “While our vaccination rate continues to rise, we are still seeing waves of transmission primarily amongst those who are not fully vaccinated. These new measures will help reduce transmission and keep our communities safe and ensure we can continue to keep businesses open and safely enjoy much-needed social events.”
