Black Tusk Nordic Events Society
COVID 19 Safety Plan

We are committed to hosting safe and responsible events. Due to the dynamic and changing
nature of the COVID 19 response, this Safety Plan is subject to change as required by Public
Health Orders and directions from National and Provincial Sport Organizations. Please check the
BTNES or event website for any future updates.

To protect the health and safety of athletes, coaches, support staff and race officials, and in
recognition of the complexity of competition environments, Black Tusk Nordic Events Society is
implementing full vaccination or mandatory PCR testing for all BTNES events for the 2021-22

Vaccination Requirement

Black Tusk Nordic Events Society requires all participants born in 2009 or later, i.e. U14+ (athletes, coaches, support staff and race officials) at any BTNES event to provide one of the following:

Proof of full vaccination, with the last shot received a minimum of 14 days prior to event
start; or

A negative PCR test that is not older than 24 hours from the beginning of the race/camp

Additional COVID 19 Information

Participants should complete a daily COVID 19 symptom self-check:

Participants are required to use masks indoors and when carpooling (eg. team vehicles.)

Stay home and arrange for testing if you have been around someone with COVID-19 or
if you experience symptoms such as a cough, fever, breathing difficulties, loss of taste or
smell or severe fatigue.

Participants who test positive for COVID-19 should immediately notify the host
organizing committee, including positive COVID-19 results up to 14 days after the event.

Spectators and users of Whistler Olympic Park facilities outside of the race area are
