SUBJECT: ** UPDATE ** Public Health Order – Officials

Please be advised that in collaboration with viaSport, BC Hockey has categorized on-ice officials (Referees and Linespersons) as ‘participants’ under the recently updated Public Health Orders. Therefore, proof of vaccination is not required for participants that are 21 years or younger. (Source – Indoor Sport Chart).

Note, Officials are NOT responsible for enforcing, monitoring or checking the vaccination status of any individual. However, every official 22 years or older must adhere to these guidelines and be prepared to provide proof of vaccination (2 doses) upon request. Please contact and advise your local Referee-in-Chief, officiating Lead or officiating assigner if you are unable to comply with the most recent updates.

Please contact BC Hockey 250-652-2978 or info@bchockey.net if you have any questions.
