Covid-19 Safety Plan

Is it safe for me, or my kids, to participate in Pop Up Play?
We are working hard to make programs as safe as possible in this time of uncertainty. It is of the utmost importance that we all continue to follow the rules set by the health authorities to mitigate the spread of Covid-19.

The Pop Up Play program complies with Phase 3 of British Columbia's Restart Plan, as well as the guidelines developed by the Regional Health Authorities, Ministry of Health, and the BC Centre for Disease Control.
