An RCA Update Communicable Disease Plans

Dear cultural community,

Like so many others across the world, we find our organization impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic as we collectively do our best to flatten the curve and protect our families and each other.

As such, the Rotary Centre for the Arts continues to closely monitor and follow all BC Provincial Health Orders. As announced by the Province of BC on August 23, 2021, we are asking all patrons entering the Mary Irwin Theatre, patrons of our weekly Community Programming such as our Jazz Jam, and participants in events over 50 people, and participants in and instructors in exercise classes such as dance, for proof of vaccination with BC’s approved vaccination passport or another valid QR code-based proof-of-vaccination document. As of October 24, 2021, all patrons attending events over 50 people or participating in high-intensity activities must be fully (two doses) vaccinated against COVID-19. Masks remain mandatory at all times throughout the RCA, including while attending classes or watching shows in the Mary Irwin Theatre. Masks may only be removed temporarily, when patrons are eating or drinking. If an RCA volunteer or staff member approaches you and asks you to put your mask on, please follow their instruction. Thank you for your cooperation.

Please refer to the Province’s updates for the most recent information:

I am proud of the entire RCA team, who have gone above and beyond in supporting one another and our arts and culture community. We are moving fast in unchartered waters and they continue to step up quickly and effectively despite the uncertainty and concern that is so familiar to us all.

We maintain our commitment to celebrate, nurture, and promote the Arts throughout this crisis. We will come through this together.
