COVID-19 Recreation & Sport FAQs (16.04.21)

Following the GNB press conference on April 15, the Frequently Asked Questions document has been updated and is available in the link below.

These changes include, but are not limited to:

  • Q. 4 : Given the additional concern with the variants, Public Health has informed us that only essential travel is recommended in and out of Orange-level zones (as well as red/lockdown). Organized sport is not considered essential travel. The table with more detail has been updated.
  • Q. 8 and Q. 10: Clarity on gatherings and venue capacity limits.

With the outbreak in zone 4, the concern with the variants and the continued pressures on the health care system, Sport Branch has decided to postpone any loosening of restrictions for organized sport.

We will then proceed with intra-regional development camps for zones 1 and 6 and we remain hopeful that we will be able to run inter-regional development camps for the other zones and a provincial camp for our NextGen and HP team later this Spring.
