FAQ:

I am attending an event at my local biathlon club, does this policy apply there?

If the event is not listed above, the Club or Division policy would apply unless it is expressly stated that the Club/Division is following the Biathlon Canada policy.

Are spectators allowed?

Restrictions for spectators will be defined by the region the event is being hosted. The Organizing Committee, in conjunction with Biathlon Canada, may choose to enhance those restrictions for spectators. If spectators are permitted, this policy applies to them.

My child, who is under 12 years old, will be spectating at the event. Do they need to be vaccinated?

Rules for spectators will be defined by the region the event is being hosted. The Organizing Committee, in conjunction with Biathlon Canada, may choose to enhance those rules for spectators.

If spectators are permitted, every spectator will be required to show proof that they have received the necessary COVID-19 vaccine dose(s) unless the individual is not eligible to receive such doses due to their age. We will consider further exemptions that may be applicable based on the location of the Event in question and the applicable legislation and public health guidance in that geographic area.
