Expanded Mask Requirement and COVID-19 Vaccine Registration for Ages 5 to 11

October 11, 2021 | British Columbia

The BC Ministry of Health has announced two imporant changes for children age 5 and up.

  1. Masks are now mandatory in indoor spaces for everyone from age 5 and up.
  2. Registration is open for children aged 5 to 11 years old to receive their COVID-19 vaccine.

Families are encouraged to register their children so that they can be vaccinated once Health Canada approves a vaccine for this age group.

Getting vaccinated against COVID-19 is an important step in reducing the spread both within the Jamat and amongst the community at large.

You can do your part to reduce transmission of COVID-19. Here’s how:

  • Get on the list for the vaccine via the Get Vaccinated registration portal. You will be contacted when it's time to book.
  • Follow the local health rules.
  • Continue to follow safety protocols including wearing masks in public, observing physical distancing and sanitizing often.

More information about eligibility and appointment booking is available at: How to Get Vaccinated for COVID-19.
