The Regional District of Nanaimo (RDN) has updated its policies in response to the latest provincial health officer orders.

Masks are no longer mandatory on RDN transit vehicles or in RDN facilities, according to a media release by the regional district.

Participants and spectators at Ravensong Aquatic Centre and Oceanside Place Arena will still need to present their BC Vaccine Card for now — the province said it plans to lift the proof of vaccination requirement on April 8. People under 22 who are participating in child and youth indoor recreation and sports programs do not need to show their proof of vaccination.

The RDN said it will continue to offer virtual services, such as bill payments, submitting bylaw complaints and accessing building permit application information and input forms.

RDN board, standing committees and select committees will continue to be live-streamed and recorded for later viewing. Some advisory committees and commissions will continue to be live-streamed, while others will be in-person only, according to the RDN.
