2022 Event Safety Message

Important Safety Message about an In-Person Kidney March for 2022

2022 will mark the 13th year of Kidney March. As always, the safety and well-being of our Marchers, Crew, volunteers, and staff is our top priority. Kidney March is committed to following the COVID-19 guidelines established by public health authorities and will follow extensive health measures.  In order to move forward with an in-person event, we will be introducing a number of new health and safety protocols to protect our community from the spread of COVID-19.

As such, anyone participating in the 2022 Kidney March in-person event in any capacity (participant, volunteer, contractor, ceremony spectator, etc.) will need to be fully vaccinated. Note: The Kidney Foundation of Canada currently considers someone to be “fully vaccinated” fourteen (14) days (or such other time as set out by public health authorities) after receiving two (2) doses of the approved Health Canada two (2) dose vaccines (e.g. Pfizer, Moderna, Astra Zeneca) or one (1) dose of the Health Canada approved single dose vaccine (Janssen/ Johnson & Johnson) along with any ‘boosters’ or additional dosage required by public health authorities. Please see The Kidney Foundation of Canada’s mandatory COVID-19 Vaccination Policy(effective November 1, 2021) for full details.

We will continue to monitor the current situation and provide additional safety and logistical updates as we near the event. In addition, we will comply with all Alberta provincial mandates that exist in September 2022.
