Vaccination Requirement in effect on 1 Nov.


Scouters and Parents,

You have received communications directly from Scouts Canada regarding the COVID 19 vaccination requirement for all those eligible for vaccination to participate in "in person" program effective 1 November 2021. (Youth whose 12th birthdays are before 31 Dec 21, and ages 12 and up, and all adults are eligible for vaccination. Therefore this policy doesn't apply to Beaver Scouts, Cub Scouts, and Scouts who are under age 12 by 31 Dec 21.) Please note that 1st Bayridge is not planning any virtual sessions at this time.

A field was created in myScouts.ca in the Medical info tab to indicate COVID 19 vaccination status: Fully vaccinated, not vaccinated, or exemption required.

* If selecting exemption, you will be required to submit an exemption form and receive approval from Safe Scouting prior to participating in any in-person Scouting activities. Learn more.

* Fully Vaccinated means you have received two doses of a Health Canada approved COVID-19 vaccine, with your last dose administered at least 14 days prior to any in-person Scouting activities.

I will be emailing anyone who is not Fully Vaccinated on Sunday to notify them that they may not participate in "in person" program until this is complete. Please do not share/email actual vaccination records. We simply need to take your declaration in myScouts.ca regarding vaccination status.

Please read our FAQs for more details.

If you need any assistance or have any additional questions please contact me at commissioner@bayridgescouts.ca Thank you in advance for your assistance in this matter!

Yours in Scouting,


G. Priems

1st Bayridge Group Commissioner

Voyageur Council, Scouts Canada
