Restart Updates

In accordance with the latest BC Provincial Health Guidelines

By Order of the PHO – As of October 24 Proof of being Fully vaccinated (with 2 doses) will be required for those 12 years & older to access the JCC.

We appreciate your patience as we roll out a system for accessing the JCC in compliance with the current Provincial Health Order.

ACCESS TO THE JCC
Applies to all members, program participants, guests, tenants and staff.

Effective September 13, individuals 12 years and older (born in 2009 and prior) must have received at least one dose of a Canada approved COVID-19 vaccine, and be fully vaccinated by October 24.
There will be no exceptions.

HOW TO OBTAIN YOUR PROOF OF VACCINATION
As per the Province of British Columbia’s Proof of Vaccination Order, you may currently use one of three methods for proof of vaccination:

  • Access your BC Vaccine Card and get detailed information through the Government Website
  • Call: 1-833-838-2323, seven days a week, 7 am to 7 pm to request your card to be mailed to you.
  • Until Sept. 26, you can also use your COVID-19 Immunization Record Card received at the immunization clinic as proof of vaccination. After Sept. 26 only BC Vaccine Cards will be accepted.
HOW YOUR PROOF OF VACCINATION WILL BE VERIFIED
Fully vaccinated members will only have to show proof of Vaccination once.  When you check in at the security booth JCC staff will verify your Proof of Vaccination and add a decal to your membership card.   Please make sure to bring it on your next visit to the J.WE ARE HERE TO HELP
