Updated September 17, 2021
Starting September 20, 2021, until further notice, Family Futures Resource Network will be implementing the Restrictions Exemption Program. We are requiring all participants, aged 12 and over, in our programs and services to continue to wear masks and additionally provide proof of vaccination or proof of a negative result as per the requirements laid out by the government of Alberta. The following information will apply:
• Proof of vaccination (for individuals 12 years and up)
• Single-dose accepted between September 20 and October 25, if received 2-weeks before the time of service
• Double doses required after October 25
• Documentation of a medical vaccine exemption
• Proof of a privately paid negative PCR or rapid test within 72 hours of service (tests from AHS or Alberta Precision Laboratories not allowed)
• Masks will be mandatory for all participants ages 2 years and up. Any participant who refuses to wear a mask will be asked to leave. No mask exemptions will be accepted at this time.
• Youth (under 18 years of age) are not required to wear a mask during physical activity such as sports activity, recreation, and performance activities (examples: parachute time, running, jumping, drama practice). Social distancing is required until youth are engaged in the activity.
If you are registered for a program and no longer wish to attend with these new mandatory measures, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or 780.413.4521. We also offer some online programs, services and support options. These virtual program options are on each program page, the At-Home Family Fun page, and our YouTube channel.
The health and safety of our families and staff remain our highest priority. Below, you will find a summary of the actions we are taking to help ensure we are lowering COVID-19 risk as much as possible for in-person programs.
• Promoting healthy hygiene practices by washing hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, before each program starts and posting signs about these healthy habits around the facility.
• Avoiding close greetings like hugs or handshakes and encourage physically distant greetings such as “air fives” and waves.
• Supporting public health contact tracing efforts in the event that an attendee tests positive, programs staff will keep daily records of anyone entering the program who stays for 15 minutes or longer (e.g. staff working each day, children, etc.).
• Intensifying the cleaning of areas and equipment after use by one group and before use by another.
• Staff will have the right of refusal if they feel that an individual shows any of the following symptoms; fever, cough, shortness of breath, sore throat, runny nose, nasal congestion, headache, and a general feeling of being unwell. Staff will have the right of refusal if an individual refuses to wear a mask.
