October 3, 2021 - Expanded mask mandate for K-12 schools.
The BCCA guidance for overnight school camps has been approved by the Ministry of Education, Ministry of Health, PHO, and the BCCDC without any changes to the draft document that has been available on the BCCA website. Camps and schools should use this when planning overnight school trips.
* Camps must submit a COVID-19 Safety Plan to their local medical health officer and the BCCA. This should be updated from the summer camp plan to reflect changes to the new guidelines.
* Camps should work with each school to understand how to best implement these guidelines in alignment with the school’s internal policies and current K-12 public health guidance.
* Masks must be worn indoors except when eating or sleeping.
* Camp programs for non-school groups must follow applicable public health guidance for youth and adult activities and gatherings.
