As many of you know, last week Premier Stephen McNeil announced that come July 31st, non-medical masks will be mandatory in indoor places for sport and recreational activities except while doing an activity where a mask cannot be worn; this includes indoor Judo facilities/dojos.
We wanted to cascade to members that starting tomorrow, anyone entering a Judo facility (including coaches, athletes, parents, etc.) must wear a mask prior to entering the space. Masks must be worn up until activity begins, which the athlete and coach can then remove their mask for the duration of the activity if they feel the activity cannot be done with a mask on. Once the activity is complete, everyone must put their masks back on and can only remove them once they are outside of the facility.
We encourage all clubs to have their athletes/coaches wear a mask the entire duration of the training session and to use their discretion if they feel the activities cannot be done with a mask on.
Thank you for helping keep our communities safe!
