COVID-19 Advice for Events

Review the latest information for event organizers, communities and venues on the current situation.


As we enter phase 5, living with COVID, there are several steps organizers and staff of events, tournaments, venues and facilities can take to prevent the spread of COVID-19 and other respiratory illnesses. Events, venues and facilities should encourage and continue with preventive public health measures. These personal and public health measures  not only help to prevent the spread of COVID-19, but also other illnesses such as the common cold and influenza. 

Wearing non-medical masks continues to be mandatory in  indoor public places. See the most recent public health order.
