VAM’s mask policy remains in effect.
September 2, 2021
The Vancouver Academy of Music is closely monitoring the advisory of the Public Health Officer and will continue to apply an abundance of caution in prioritizing the health and safety of our students, faculty, staff, and community.
As British Columbia’s requirement of proof of vaccination does not come into effect until September 13, 2021, at this time, VAM will not be requiring individuals to show proof of vaccination to enter the facility.
Faculty members will have the liberty to choose whether or not they will teach in-person based on their students’ vaccine status.
Masks are mandatory in VAM facilities and are required to be worn at all times, except when the individual is engaging in an activity that is not possible when the face is covered. The following are exempt from this mask requirement:
– Children under the age of 5
– Anyone with an underlying medical condition which inhibits the use of a face mask, or unable to apply/remove a mask without assistance.
