As we continue to support the sector during the COVID-19 pandemic, one question that keeps arising is what is RFABC’s position and role? That is certainly a relevant question and our commitment to you is as follows:
Our role as an education, technical, and safety provider is to support and deliver information and resources to our Members that allow them to make informed decisions. We recognize that our municipal, not for profit, and private recreation entities have to make those decisions based on their own unique circumstances when dealing with the pandemic.
With respect to the COVID-19 pandemic we cannot mandate direction, nor can we claim to speak on behalf of the organizations who are members of RFABC. However, we wish to assure you that we will not abdicate our responsibility to provide up to date information and guidance on all issues relevant to the sector, including the pandemic. As stated earlier, we do support the PHO's orders and the various “Return to Sport Plans” and would encourage that all Members work to respect both the PHO orders and the return plans.
RFABC has and will continue to work in a collaborative fashion with viaSport and BCRPA, as we navigate the ongoing issues related to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Please see the most recent joint communique below from viaSport, BCRPA, and RFABC on the Return to Sport Guidelines and the collaborative process we have been engaged in.
Take Care and Stay Safe
