The House is still OPEN to program users and private renters following COVID restrictions. However, most MCA programs and renters have canceled near-term events because of the recent high number of COVID cases and impact on hospital capacity. Please contact your program organizers to confirm if or when the programs will resume.
The MCA requests that all program leads, and private renters review our organization’s updated "Covid Safety Plan", which is based on recommendations from BC Health. Attached is a link to the most recent BC Health orders:
The MCA also strongly recommends that these guidelines are a minimum, and suggest rental and program organizers err on the side of caution when enforcing masking and vaccination guidelines, especially when there are high-risk participants or activities in the house. Community House user groups and private renters are required to self-monitor and not use the facility if they are ill or/and have symptoms of communicable disease, or have had recent contact with someone who has a communicable disease. The current House capacity is 40 people. Masks must be worn inside the House by everyone aged 5 and up, except by those with valid health reasons. Masks may be temporarily lowered to eat or drink. Proof of vaccination is required for everyone aged 12 and up, except by those with valid health reasons. It is at the discretion of program organizers how they request and verify proof of vaccination.
Please stay safe.
