We will communicate that plan in the coming weeks.

Saskatchewan Alpine will follow current protocols as identified by current mandates from the Government of Saskatchewan. If resorts have certain mandates, we will abide the regulations set. Please ensure that you familiarize yourself with the current requirements.

Are there any exemptions to the proof of vaccination requirement due to medical reasons? What proof is required?

Individuals applying for a medical exemption must provide a written document completed and supplied from either a physician designated as an MD, or a Registered Nurse in the Extended Class designated as RN(EC) or Nurse Practitioner (NP). The exemption must state that the individual is exempt for a medical reason from being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 and the effective time-period for the medical reason. The accommodation is only acceptable for the timeframe indicated by the medical professional within the documentation, including the date the individual is seeking access to the sanctioned event. Saskatchewan Alpine is not allowed to keep this document and it must be kept by the individual and shown upon request.

Can facilities/resorts apply stricter measures than what is outlined in the Saskatchewan Alpine COVID-19 Vaccination Policy?

Yes, facilities/resorts are allowed to impose stricter measures. If this occurs, Saskatchewan Alpine and all their athletes, volunteers, spectators, and family members, must abide by these rules.

What happens if I ignore this requirement, or provide false or fraudulent documentation?

Individuals who do not provide proof of vaccination or who have not received a completed series of a Health Canada approved COVID-19 vaccine will not be eligible to participate in any Saskatchewan Alpine sanctioned event until such time they present satisfactory evidence that they are fully vaccinated. Individuals providing false or fraudulent documentation will be subject to disciplinary actions, up to and including permanent expulsion from Saskatchewan Alpine.

Do coaches and volunteers still need to wear a mask now that there is a Vaccine Policy?

There are no exemptions for coaches or volunteers. Masks are to be always worn as it is a Provincial Health Order. The Vaccine Policy allows for athletes to remove masks only.
