Public Health Order Update – April 8, 2022

Throughout the Pandemic, Oak Bay Parks, Recreation and Culture have followed the guidelines and recommendations of the Province, Island Health and other industry specific authorities in order to develop and implement safety plans for patrons and employees.

According to the Provincial Health Officer and the Provincial Health Orders, as of April 8, 2022, proof of vaccination is no longer required for access to facilities, programs and services offered by Oak Bay Parks, Recreation and Culture. Furthermore, masks are not longer required to be worn. Mask wearing is an individual choice. 

Oak Bay Parks, Recreation and Culture operates a respectful workplace environment and as such we ask that all patrons respect the choices and positions of individuals as they participate in their recreational activities. Disrespectful, aggressive and/or intimidating behavior towards others in our facilities or program may lead to suspension of access privileges.
