For all race events at the Nakkertok Nordic Centre, Nakkertok Ski Association requires that all athletes, coaches, officials, volunteers, spectators and accompanying parents who are eligible to be vaccinated, demonstrate valid proof of vaccination. This requirement extends to all individuals regardless of their domicile. The only exceptions that will be permitted are those of a medical nature, as determined by the provincial authorities. The obligation to enforce this policy extends to any party or organization that is renting or operating on Nakkertok property.

Proof of vaccination: Quebec residents must present a proof of vaccination (printed, electronic or via the VaxiCode application) along with an identification document. Individuals who do not live in Québec and are travelling in Québec must present a valid photo ID with an address outside Québec, and a vaccine passport with a QR code or official proof of vaccination against COVID-19 issued by their country or province in Canada.

On the unofficial training day, athletes, coaches and team support must present themselves at the Chalet upon arrival on the site to have their proof of vaccination checked. They must do so before going to ski or preparing skis. On official training and race days, the proof of vaccination will be checked at the different site entrances. A wrist band will be given after verification and must be worn during the entire duration of the event. Anyone with a damaged wrist band will have to show its proof of vaccination again.

Note that this process may take time. Athletes and coaches should allow for extra time to complete it.

Other measures: Even with a proof of vaccination, guidelines to ensure the safety of all individuals associated with the race will be put in place and will be observed. These guidelines, in conformity with Public Health guidelines for outside activities and events, will be communicated no later than December 9, 2021 on the Zone 4 event page at https://zone4.ca/event/2021/candycanecup/.

Please note that spectators are strongly encouraged to register on the online site in Zone 4 so that the organizing committee can reach them in the event of an outbreak during the event.
