Quilt Canada 2022
Updated May 24 2022
We are so looking forward to seeing you in person at Quilt Canada 2022 in Vancouver, and are working to ensure a safe and welcoming environment for everyone.
What does this mean in terms of Covid guidelines?
The provincial health officer of British Columbia does not currently mandate the use of masks in public indoor spaces, but mask wearing is still encouraged, especially when social distancing is a challenge.
The Vancouver Convention Centre is open at full capacity, and is committed to creating safe experiences for visitors. Their precautions include:
– frequent cleaning and disinfecting of high-touch surfaces
– hand sanitizing stations located throughout the facility
-an award-winning air filtration system with good maintenance standards.
In fact, the Centre has achieved Global Biorisk Advisory Council Star accreditation for providing a clean, safe, and healthy environment with rigorous protocols in place.
The Centre also recommends the use of masks where physical distancing may not be possible, and has signage throughout the facility advising people to not enter if sick or feeling unwell.
In addition, Quilt Canada has set up the conference with wide aisles to allow as much physical distancing as possible. The workshop classrooms and lecture halls are large and will allow participants to spread out.
The CQA/ACC Board of Directors encourages all volunteers and visitors to wear masks.
We are counting on the kindness of quilters to help maintain a safe environment, and to respect the choices of others, so that we may all enjoy the opportunity to be together again, in a safe and welcoming space.
