COVID-19 Update

POLICY UPDATE Sept 16, 2021:

In response to Alberta’s state of public health emergency, BLOCS will be implementing the Restrictions Exemption Program to ensure we can continue operating without added restrictions and best serve our community.

As of Sept 20th, anyone 12 or over entering BLOCS will require either:

  1. Proof of a first dose of the COVID-19 vaccine by at least 2 weeks prior to entry, OR
  2. Proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hrs prior to entry.

Proof of a second dose is required by October 25th.

Please have your proof of vaccination on hand when you arrive.  You can choose to have your vaccination status added to your account, so you won’t need to show proof each time.

You may bring your proof of vaccination now, so we can update your account ahead of time.

For more info on how to access your proof of vaccination, please visit the alberta.ca/covid-19 website.

We understand that these are challenging times and our vaccination policy will be disappointing for some.  If you are uncomfortable with our options, you may fill out a freeze or cancellation form through our website.

We greatly appreciate your continued patience as we navigate these difficult times.  Thank you so much for your ongoing support and understanding.
