The UNA operates on a system of principles to guide our operations and decisions to achieve our mission of fostering a thriving community.
UNA Communicable Disease Prevention Plan
As the UNA begins to bring our services back up to full capacity, we are introducing the UNA Communicable Disease Prevention Plan which will replace the existing COVID-19 Safety Plan.
See the full UNA Communicable Disease Prevention Plan for more information.
Implementing Flexible Refund Policies
We have developed a more lenient refund policy for illness-related program withdrawal requests to encourage participants to stay home if they are sick.
Mask Requirement in Indoor Facilities
Starting Wednesday, Aug. 25, 2021, as per BC provincial health orders, masks must be worn in all indoor public spaces throughout B.C. to help slow the transmission of COVID-19 as B.C. prepares for the fall and respiratory illness season.
The order from the provincial health officer requires people 9 and older to wear masks in indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status.
The UNA is requiring everyone who is in a program with children ages 9 and older to wear masks in indoor public settings as well.
Masks are not recommended for children under the age of 2, but should be encouraged for children ages 2-8 in public settings.
Masks may be removed temporarily in indoor public places for the following reasons:
Masks are exempt for the following:
Proof of Vaccination Requirement
By order of the Provincial Health Officer, beginning September 13, 2021, proof of vaccination will be required to access some events and services that the UNA provides.
The requirement applies to all people born in 2009 or earlier (ages 12+). UNA staff will ask to see your proof of vaccination and valid government ID while accessing some services at the Wesbrook Community Centre, the Old Barn Community Centre and the UNA Main Office.
The requirement will be in place until January 31, 2022, subject to extension.
More details will come in the following weeks. Please subscribe to our weekly newsletter to receive the latest news.
More information on the BC Vaccine Card and how to book your vaccination can be found on the Health BC website.
