COVID-19 Update – March 18, 2021

The City of Ottawa enters the Red Zone for COVID-19 on Friday March 19, 2021. This will have some ramifications for the RA Centre itself, which will remain open, and some other clubs. There will be no real impact on RA Photo Club activities. Most of our activities are occurring online, so there will be no impact on regular meetings or other online activities.

There are no changes to how we conduct in-person events. Both the Urban and Nature groups will be holding group events as we move into spring. Only fully paid up members who have agreed to the RA Centre COVID-19 waiver and book using the RAPC online booking tool are allowed to attend. We must do so to ensure that event attendees are covered by RA insurance policies. The RAPC is required to supply RA staff with contact tracing information within 24 hours of any off-site event and we use the online booking data to do this. There is no change in the number of people who can get together for outdoor events; the maximum number allowed remains at 25 in the Red Zone.

There is also no change in Studio Operations. The studio must be booked using the RA Centre booking system (not the RAPC one) and a maximum of five (5) people are allowed in the studio at one time.

Please be advised that there is a delay of a few days between the time a membership is renewed and / or the COVID-19 waiver is agreed to and the data is updated in the RAPC booking system. If you are intending to attend in-person events, please do not leave these activities to the last minute.
