In response to Health and Community Services Public Advisory on February 23, 2022, should all restrictions be lifted as planned on March 14, 2022, Special Olympics NL would like to make the following announcement:

Special Olympics NL will continue beyond March 14, 2022, to require Proof of Vaccination and mandatory use of masks by all participants who attend programs and competitions.  That means, all participants (athletes, volunteers, 1 on 1 support, parent/caregivers, and staff) who attend a program or competition after March 14, 2022, will still be required to show Proof of Vaccination as per our provincial policy and use of mandatory masks will remain for all indoor settings and highly recommended for outdoor settings.

Special Olympics NL will continue to monitor and update our Return to Program and Competition Plan through guidance from Public Health, Sport NL and Special Olympics Canada.

Please continue to follow all Public Health guidance: https://www.gov.nl.ca/covid-19/

As always, we thank you for your patience and cooperation as we support our athletes, volunteers and all stakeholders through the next phase. We appreciate there are many perspectives on public health restrictions, our goal is to support everyone through a safe and gradual return to in-person programs and competitions while maintaining a high level of health and safety for all who attend our programs. Let’s all work together and do our part to make 2022 a great year! Stay safe and remember to wear your mask, sanitize and keep physically distant when you go out,  and stay home if you are not feeling well.
