Message to the Community of Greater Bragg Creek and the patrons of the Bragg Creek Community Centre

The BCCA will follow the guidelines of the Public Health Officer in our continued efforts to keep our Community members safe while ensuring that operations of our Community Centre continue as much as possible.

From September 17-20th, we will ensure any users of the Centre are following the requirements to maintain social distance, masks and for our Church group, ensure 1/3 of capacity for their Sunday service.

As of September 20, 2021, the BCCA will participate in the Restriction Exemption Program (REP) as defined by the Alberta Government. Any program participants will require proof of vaccination, a negative test result within 72 hours, or proof of a medical exemption for those 18 and older in youth sports, recreation and performance and 12 and older for general events.

Please note that from September 20 to October 25th participants with one dose only will be permitted to access the activity/centre as long as the dose was provided 2 weeks prior.

As of October 25th, 2021 proof of double vaccination is required for people over 12 years of age to access the programs or activities at the BCCA which will enable us to function as per usual.

Voting Access

The Bragg Creek Centre is the polling station for Monday’s election. The mandated face masks, frequent hand sanitizing, and anyone who is symptomatic or a positive Covid-19 remain isolated. The Elections staff and the Centre will do everything possible to ensure orderly and safe access to voting for our community.

Satellite Library Access

Access to the library will continue, although all community members must be masked to access the lockers. We ask any patrons who feel unwell or be showing Covid related symptoms, or who have been advised to isolate under the Public Health Guidelines not to enter the building.

Farmers Market

As an outdoor activity, the market will continue until the final day; September 26, 2021. We will provide additional hand sanitizing stations and strongly encourage mask use as social distancing can be difficult in the format we have for our market.

The staff and volunteers with the BCCA appreciate your understanding and empathy as we attempt to navigate this very trying and difficult time. If any community members have any questions we are happy to answer them at info@braggcreekca.com

Thank you for your understanding and ongoing support of your community centre.
