Proof of Vaccination Required - Effective September 20, 2021
As mandated by the Province of Alberta, effective Monday, September 20, 2021 proof of vaccination will be required of all patrons in order for the North Edmonton Seniors Association to proceed with the delivery of its programs and services. This means that all patrons visiting the centre including members, instructors, coordinators and staff will be required to provide proof of their vaccinations on or before their scheduled start date for all activities commencing the week of September 20, 2021 and later.
NESA endeavors to navigate through these challenging times, remains committed to ensuring the safety of its patrons and thanks you for your patience and support. If you are vaccinated and can show hard copy or electronic proof before Monday, September 20, 2021 we encourage you to visit NESA during our scheduled business hours so your records and vaccination status can be updated. Alternatively you can provide vaccination proof via email so our team can update your file before your next scheduled visit.
If sending your proof of vaccination electronically, please take a photo or screenshot of your proof of second vaccination documentation or a screenshot of your MyHealth Records verifying your vaccination status. Ensure that your full name is present in this document. Alternatively you can scan and email NESA with a copy of the medical document confirming your vaccination status. Thank you.
Please note that if you choose to visit NESA to show proof of your vaccination, we do not require a copy of this documentation, we just need to review a hard copy or electronic confirmation of it in person. Should you choose to email your vaccination proof, please note that once your vaccination status has been verified and NESA's records are updated, your email will be permanently deleted as NESA will not be saving, printing or storing this vaccination information, we simply just need to verify that it exists for you.
We will begin today asking members who are on site for proof of vaccination so that we can update our database with as many verifications as possible before Monday, September 20, 2021. We recognize that it is going to take some time to get everyone up to date in our system but we will do our best with the current resources we have available over the coming days.
Members who do not provide NESA vaccination proof by Monday, September 20, 2021, will not be permitted to participate in activities at NESA until such proof is provided. Memberships will be suspended and activity participation will not be permitted until vaccination proof has been provided. If members wish to fully withdraw from their programs they can submit a request via email.
In efforts to support an organized and timely transition of this newly implemented mandate at NESA, if you are able to provide your proof of vaccination this week, we strongly encourage you to visit us during regular business hours (8:30am-4:00pm) or contact us via email with your proof of vaccination.
Thank you once again for your patience, understanding and support - if everyone does their part we are confident that we can safely navigate through these unprecedented times and maintain a safe and enjoyable recreation community for all.
