November 11, 2020: Lower Mainland and the Fraser Valley restrictions PHO Order
The order and direction of the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) about Lower Mainland and Fraser Valley restrictions is now final and posted on the Provinces’ website. Since Dr. Henry’s press conference relating to the Order on Saturday, November 7, 2020 we have been working closely with the Province on the Order’s development.
Thank you for your patience and leadership as we navigate the many gray areas together.
The Order and what it means to sport:
The Order States: “No person or municipality may provide or host and no person may participate in an indoor sport unless the sport involves no physical contact between the participants.”
The Order States: “No person may attend as a spectator at an indoor sport activity unless this is necessary to provide care to a participant.”
The Order States: “No person may travel to or from the affected area or between the regions of the Fraser Health Authority and the Vancouver Coastal Health Authority for any sport related activity, including practice, training, games or tournaments, unless they are an identified by Canadian Sports Institute Pacific as a high performance athlete affiliated with an accredited provincial or national sports organization and are already training in the affected area and subject to the safety guidelines of their provincial sports organization.”
The Order States: “No person or municipality may provide or host and no person may participate in a group indoor fitness activity until guidelines for group indoor fitness activities have been approved by the provincial health officer and the person or municipality who provides or hosts the activity has submitted an updated safety plan in accordance with those guidelines with respect to the activity to the Medical Health Officer and the safety plan has been approved. Once a safety plan has been approved, it must be posted in a place easily visible to participants.”
What it means:
We know there will be more questions arising based on the details of the new Order. Our FAQ is an additional resource for you and is continually being updated as we continue to receive clarity on the Order and respond to your questions.
Provincial health officer orders are always a last resort, but right now these additional measures are required in the Vancouver Coastal and Fraser Health regions. We need everyone to re-double our efforts to protect our communities.
