COVID-19 and RFABC Courses
The growing concern around COVID-19 has everyone feeling uneasy, especially as we face more changes to our daily routines and future plans. At RFABC, we feel it too and we want to ensure all courses are offered safely and without threat to the health of participants and instructors.

We will be diligent in monitoring developments as they unfold and the courses, at this time, are scheduled to continue.  We are actively working with course locations to take further precautions, such as social distancing, enhanced cleaning, and encouraging strong hygiene practices. That said, facility restrictions and government directives will also dictate how we proceed.  In the event that courses are cancelled or rescheduled, we will work with students to issue full refund cheques.

Like you, we are doing the best that we can to navigate these uncertain times as they continue to evolve. We are working to help protect the well-being of our participants and instructors.

The Recreation Facility Association of British Columbia (RFABC) will be adhering to all the Provincial Health Orders and restrictions, and the requirements set forth by the host facility for the educational programs, workshops, annual conference, and operation of business matters. As per the April 8, 2022 Provincial Health order a copy of the RFABC has transferred from a COVID-19 Safety Plan to a Communicable Disease Plan.
