Expanded Vaccination Program
Vaccinations for youth aged 5-11 are now available in Alberta.
At this time the Government of Alberta has not implemented any further restrictions for this age group with respect to being vaccinated, nor have we heard of any municipalities implementing any further restrictions. Currently there are no mandated changes to any operations at your clubs. For further information on the expansion of the vaccine program please click here.
Implementing the Restrictions Exemption Program (REP) has come with some challenges and expense. To help alleviate some of this, the GoA has provided a couple of resources:
- REP Implementation Grant of $2,000.00 to help with costs associated with the program. Further information can be found in our e-mail of November 17.
- REP Safety Training is now available. The 45-minute online training is available at no cost to employers and their employees and provides advice on how to assess and manage challenging situations that may arise during their daily operations. The training also includes information that workers need to keep themselves and their customers safe while implementing COVID-19 safety requirements: such as masking, requesting proof of vaccination or a recent negative COVID-19 test, and setting up physical distancing. Employers must enroll for the training on behalf of their employees. After enrolling, employers will receive an access code via email to share. Enroll for training here.
