Important info regarding COVID policies
As we’ve been warning over the last few weeks, starting October 24th UBCAni will be forced to check for BC Vaccine Passports indicating full vaccination as well as matching ID at all events according to provincial health policies, and forced to deny entry to any who cannot provide this. As the Halloween Social takes place on the 30th, we are once again reminding you to please apply for your BC Vaccine Passport ASAP if you haven’t already. See the section below for more details on the process.
