Testing and Isolation

Conference participants must get a COVID-19 POC test (rapid test) if they are experiencing one or more of the following symptoms: fever above 38 degrees Celsius, a new cough, or worsening chronic cough, sore throat, runny nose, headache, a new onset of fatigue, a new onset of muscle pain, diarrhea, loss of sense of taste, and/or loss of sense of smell.

A participant who receives a positive POC test, and anyone sharing a hotel room with this individual at the Crowne Plaza Hotel will have to isolate themselves immediately. These delegates will be provided with all meals until the end of the conference and will have the option to compete virtually from their hotel room. Delegates are responsible for additional hotel accommodations, food, and travel costs beyond March 13th. As per New Brunswick Public Health rules, vaccinated people who have tested positive, as well as vaccinated, asymptomatic, close household contacts, will need to isolate for five days after the positive result is received.

Participants may email VP Logistics, Cassie Pitchford, at [email protected] to get a test.

Vaccine Requirements

The province of New Brunswick requires all competition participants be fully vaccinated or provide proof of medical exemption to attend all aspects of the competition. Proof of vaccination and government issued ID will be checked upon check-in to the competition. CEC will NOT store any personal information other than confirmation of vaccination/exemption.

You are considered fully vaccinated fourteen (14) days after you receive your final dose of an approved Health Canada COVID-19 vaccine.

Only medical exemptions signed by a healthcare professional will be accepted.

UNB-Specific Policies
