COVID-19 Update

Last Updated: October 5, 2021

In September, Interior Health revised additional COVID-19 restrictions. Indoor group fitness classes are allowed as long as all instructors and participants are double vaccinated. Please pre-register for fitness classes and ensure that you show your proof of double vaccination prior to your first class.

On September 13, 2021, the government of BC mandated the vaccine card in order to access certain services. The Ashcroft HUB follows government health orders. To ensure that we can continue to provide services to communities and so that staff can continue to work, the Ashcroft HUB must comply with the vaccine card requirement.  Some services at the Ashcroft HUB require a vaccine card, however, some do not.
Please check in with the office the next time you visit so that we can enter your vaccine status.
Thank you for being kind and understanding with our staff.
For more information or to find out which services require a vaccine card. Please call 250 453-9177.

Re: School District Building Disposal Process

At the Tuesday, January 5th meeting of the Board of Education for School District No. 74 it was approved to proceed with the disposal process for the building that the Ashcroft HUB currently leases. The first step in a building disposal process according the school board’s policies is to complete a consultation process. The consultation process has not yet been announced; however, it is expected that by January 8th, 2021, community should be informed of the process and the timeline to receive community input.

During the School District’s disposal process, the Ashcroft HUB will continue to provide services as always. The board of directors at the Ashcroft HUB are diligently working on a long-term plan to ensure that the HUB continues to serve communities now and into the future.

We ask that community continue to support the Ashcroft HUB as you always have and to provide your feedback to the school district once the process is announced.
