At this time, Alberta Health, AOA, Orienteering Canada, and our insurance provider no longer require special Covid-19 measures, however, we have the following health, safety, and insurance requirements for participation at any club event:

  1. All participants must either be:
    i) a member of Foothills Orienteering Club for the current year (including SOGO members); or
    ii) a member of an affiliated Orienteering Canada club; or
    iii) a volunteer or employee only if carrying out their assigned duties. Volunteers must complete an AOA volunteer waiver.
  2. All participants must have completed the annual online participation waiver, which is done when registering for your Foothills Orienteering membership. If you have a membership from another Club or are an Honorary Lifetime membership, you must submit a standalone annual online waiver.
  3. All participants must pre-register on the specific event page following the instructions on the event page (unless the specific event does not require pre-registration).
  4. Please read our one-page or expanded orienteering safety guidelines.
  5. Practice responsible health hygiene including:
    • If you have a cold, fever, flu, COVID-19 symptoms, or recent exposure to someone with Covid-19, please stay home and/or ask us about using MapRun to run the course on your own a later time.
    • Follow all Alberta Health Covid-19 guidance
    • Avoid touching communal surfaces such as SI controls.
    • Wash/sanitize your hands before and after being on a course.
    • Follow any event-specific requirements.
