Last update: October 3, 2022
While COVID-19 is still a concern, as of 1 October 2022 most of the restrictions are now no longer in effect. We are still asking Staff, Cadets and Parents to do a self assessment before every cadet activity. If you test positive for COVID-19 and are fully vaccinated, you need to self-isolate at home for 5 days AND until your symptoms improve and you no longer have a fever.
- Cadets will follow Public Health Measures (PHMs) for the area where they are attending training. Currently, for all of Pacific Region (BC), this means that wearing of a non-medical masks (NMM) at cadet activities is optional.
- Personnel who choose to wear a NMM will be respectfully supported in their choice to do so. Equally, those who choose not to wear a NMM will be respectfully supported in their choice.
- There will be situations where there are more restrictive measures that must be followed. For example, if a cadet activity is being held on a Defence establishment (Base, Wing, Armoury, ship, aircraft, vehicle) where wearing of a Non-Medical Mask remains mandatory, then this will be followed. The same would be the case if you are parading at or visiting a location that has a policy requiring Non-Medical Masks to be worn.
- Should Public Health Measures be changed in a particular area and masks become a mandatory requirement, then corps/squadrons shall immediately adapt to comply with the Public Health Measures. Corps/squadron Commanding Officers are not to wait for direction to implement such a change – if the location where your activity is being held requires Non-Medical Masks to be worn, compliance with this Public Health Measure is immediately required.
- As always, Cadets, Staff, Volunteers, Parents who have any signs of illness or come in contact with someone should be remaining home, or should be returned home, following all appropriate Public Health Measures.
We are still asking all Cadets, Staff, Parents to self-screen before coming to any Squadron related activities. If you have come in contact with someone who has had COVID-19 or been out of the country in the last 14 days please check with Major Taylor before attending any activities. If you aren’t feeling well, please stay home and fill out the Request to be Excused Form on the website. Squadron Staff will still be performing COVID-19 screening questions/procedures and we will be maintaining social distancing protocols as best as we can. The COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool can be used to provide up-to-date guidance and recommendations for testing and follow-up for COVID-19 that follows BCCDC guidance. You can complete this assessment for yourself or on behalf of someone else. Please read the Squadron COVID Safety Standard Operating Procedures for arrival and departure timings. If you have any questions or concerns please email Major Taylor at email@example.com.
CANCDTGEN 009/22 has replaced CANCDTGEN 005/22 effective 22 June 2022. CANCDTGEN 009/22 has a significant change to the vaccination requirement.
