COVID Protocols

Proof of Vaccination

Provincial Health Orders require all attendees to our indoor Club meetings to provide proof of vaccination.

These protocols may be changed on short notice by Esquimalt United Church under the guidance of the UCC, PWR, or the BC Provincial Health Officer. Esquimalt United will not be responsible for loss of revenue, or expenses due to the need for your event or meeting to be cancelled.
