Recreation Services COVID-19 Response

Service Updates

As of Wednesday, August 25, 2021, masks must be worn in all indoor public spaces throughout B.C. A new order from the provincial health officer will require people 12 and older to wear masks in indoor public settings, regardless of vaccination status. Masks must be worn in the common areas of sport, fitness, and recreation centres when not engaged in physical activity. For more information, visit https://www.bcit.ca/covid-19/.

By order of the PHO, proof of vaccination will be required to access Recreation Services. Starting September 13, you must have at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine. Proof of vaccination – Province of British Columbia (gov.bc.ca)

When coming into the Recreation Centre for any purpose you will need to show your proof of vaccination, a valid government photo ID, as well as your BCIT student/employee ID card each and every time you enter into the facility. Below you will find some examples of a valid government photo ID:

  • BC driver’s licence or BC Services Card
  • Passport
  • Photo ID issued by another province or territory

Starting on Monday September 27th we will only be accepting the BC Vaccine Card. Visit – BC Proof of vaccination and the BC Vaccine card to learn how to apply and download a BC Vaccine Card. If you don’t have a personal health number yet, please contact the COVID-19 vaccination line for assistance.
