The health and safety of our guests and staff are our top priority. Our COVID-19 protocols are based on direction from the BC Provincial Health Officer and the latest science as it relates to swimming pool environments. These protocols are subject to change if necessary to meet new health orders or directives.
The latest version of the Provincial Health Order related to the proof of vaccination program now includes swimming pools. (Official copy here ).
Accordingly, and until further notice, Pedalheads will now require proof of vaccination for everyone 12 and older who enters the facility (participants and spectators). Masks are still required in all facilities at all times.
We also ask that parents please continue following our one-parent/caregiver per family unit request for drop-off, pick-up, and our viewing areas.
In order to protect children and staff, we are utilizing multiple measures to maximize health and safety at camp:
Parent self assessment of child using Pedalheads Swim Covid Health Check:
Please assess your child using the Pedalheads Swim Covid Health Check within 8 hours prior to your child’s swimming lesson.
If you answered "YES" to one of the questions included under ‘Key Symptoms of Illness’ (excluding fever), the swimmer should stay home for 24 hours from when the symptoms started. If the symptom improves, the swimmer may return to lessons when they feel well enough. If the symptom persists or worsens, seek a health assessment.
If you answered "YES" to two or more of the questions included under ‘Key Symptoms of Illness’ or the swimmer has a fever, seek a health assessment. A health assessment includes calling a physician or nurse practitioner, or 8-1-1. If a health assessment is required, the student should not return to lessons until COVID-19 has been excluded and symptoms have improved.
If you answered "YES" to questions 2 or 3, use the COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool to determine if the swimmer should seek testing for COVID-19. If a COVID-19 test is not recommended by the health assessment, the student can return to lessons when symptoms improve and they feel well enough but only after 14 days of self isolation.
Promotion of "stay at home" if feeling ill or exhibiting any symptoms.
