COVID-19 Updates

The health and well-being of our members, guests and employees is our top priority and we are following all directions and guidelines from Alberta Health Services. We appreciate the understanding and discipline of everyone following these guidelines so we can keep everyone healthy, safe and curling.  

Read the BCC’s Return-To-Play Guidelines  (Current: October 2021).

For inquiries related to Rapid Response and other related procedures, please contact us.

Update: October 26, 2021

Alberta vaccine records with QR codes will be the only valid Alberta proof of vaccination accepted by operators participating in the Restrictions Exemption Program as of November 15.  Required for all individuals 12+ attending the BCC. Businesses will use the AB Covid Records Verifier app to scan your QR code. When scanned, it displays your name, birthdate and vaccination status. It is not connected to other personal info.  

 

Update: September 21, 2021

The health and well-being of our members, guests and employees is our top priority and we are following all directions and guidelines from Government of Alberta and Alberta Health Services, Town of Banff, and Curling Alberta. This currently includes mandatory masking throughout the facility, except when optional on the ice, or when seated in the Club lounge to eat/drink.  These measures also currently includes the Government of Alberta's Restriction Exemption Program requiring any individual aged 12+ to provide proof of vaccination, a negative test result within 72 hours of accessing the facility, or documented medical exemption, plus if aged 18+, personal identification.  The presentation of this documentation will be required upon arrival at the Fenland's Recreation Centre, managed by the Town of Banff. Please click for Town of Banff's info page. Failure to provide the required documentation upon arrival at the facility will result in being denied entry to the Fenland's Recreation Centre and by extension denied entry to the Banff Curling Club.  You will not be eligible for refund on any event, program or other fees associated with your attending the facility.

Update: September 20, 2021

Government of Alberta's Restriction Exemption Program will be implemented at the Banff Curling Club, and is required upon arrival at the Fenland's Recreation Centre - managed by the Town of Banff. Details to come.  Communication will be sent to BCC workers, members, and user groups (i.e. those who have purchased memberships, registered for programs, booked a group or registered for bonspiels).

Update: September 16, 2021

Government of Alberta has implemented mandatory mask-wearing and physical distancing while in public facilities. Physical distancing (ie. remaining 2m apart from others) and mask-wearing is mandatory throughout the Fenlands Recreation Centre and Banff Curling Club.  Mask-wearing by curlers is optional while on the ice, only. 

Effective September 20th is the Government of Alberta's Restrictions Exemption Program. Information on accessing the Fenlands Recreation Centre and Banff Curling Club will be posted here, communicated to our Club's user groups, and Club members as details become available. 

Update: February 7, 2021

Due to the current pandemic situation, and where our facility and programing fall within the Province's reopening plan, the Banff Curling Club is closed for the season.  Information will be communicated to members and registered program participants within the next week regarding refunds.  An invitation will be sent for our AGM and we look forward to seeing you all in the fall for the 2021/22 season. 

Update: January 10, 2021

As per public health order by the Provincial government, the temporary closure of indoor recreation and team sports activities remain in effect until at least January 21st. We will endeavour to reopen our doors to members and program participants within one week following our industry's reopening date.  This exact date has yet to be announced.

While Club activities are on pause, our virtual office remains open.  If you have questions or inquiries for rental ice in the new year, please contact us. 

Update: December 8, 2020

Update: November 25, 2020

As part of the restrictions on businesses and services announced earlier this week by the Provincial government, effective Friday, November 27th, the Banff Curling Club - as a team sport activity, will be closed for a minimum of three weeks.  Since this brings us to December 19th, days before our regularly scheduled holiday closure / mid-season flood, the Banff Curling Club has decided to remain closed until our regular scheduled reopening in January. 
 
While Club activities are on pause, our virtual office is still open.  If you have any questions, concerns, or would like to tentatively reserve ice time for the new year, please contact us.

Update: November 15, 2020

How Enhanced Measures Impact The Club:
  • No Access to residents of other zones with Enhanced Restrictions: We are not permitted to host residents from other zones with Enhanced Restrictions in place.  
     
  • Learn 2 Curl Public Nights (Tuesdays) are cancelled until further notice due to the random/transient nature of its participant base. 

  • Bar Sales Restriction: Due to the Enhanced Restrictions, and our Class B licence, we are to stop the sale of alcohol at 10pm until further notice.
In a nutshell, what is the BCC doing to keep its members and staff safe?
  • Facility is closed to the public. Only BCC members, pre-registered program/event participants, Youth Club parent/guardian (ie. chaperone), and staff are permitted to access the Curling Club. 

  • No spectators. While spectators (ie. friends/family) have not been attending the facility, until further notice, spectators will not be permitted to attend the facility until further notice.  This is to limit the number of transient community members in the facility.

  • Frequent Cleaning and Sanitizing. BCC and Fenlands staff are diligent in their cleaning/sanitizing efforts throughout the facility.  All surfaces are sanitized between use (ie between draws, or between programs), and at the end of the night.  Equipment is being quarantined and sanitized between use.

  • Wearing Masks.  Masks are mandatory throughout the Fenlands facility, and are strongly recommended on the ice.  "My mask protects you. Your mask protects me".  We request that masks are worn during play, but option while sweeping.
