In response to the ongoing COVID-19 public health crisis which resulted in a state of public health emergency being declared in Alberta on September 15, 2021, Gilmour Photography is updating long-term safety protocols to ensure the ongoing safety of our photography crew and clients. These protocols are consistent with the new measures introduced by the Government of Alberta are required by many of our clients.
Starting November 1st, 2021, Gilmour Photography crew, including contractors and suppliers, will be required to be fully vaccinated. Gilmour Photography contractors and suppliers include all individuals attending photo shoots on your organization’s behalf. It will be the responsibility of each contractor and supplier to ensure their employees, staff, agents, and subcontractors are fully vaccinated and meet the requirements of the Gilmour Photography’s safety protocols before attending a photo shoot.
Gilmour Photography considers individuals to be fully vaccinated:
- 14 days after receiving the recommended number of doses of a Health Canada approved vaccine; or,
- 14 days after receiving a Health Canada approved mRNA vaccine in addition to a non-Health Canada approved vaccine.
This means that all individuals attending a photo shoot on your organization’s behalf will need to be fully vaccinated 14 days prior to November 1st and will need to be able to provide proof of vaccination as required by Gilmour Photography.
Individuals who cannot establish that they are fully vaccinated or who have not obtained a valid medical or other human rights-based exemption before November 1st, 2021, will not be permitted at any Gilmour Photography photo shoot until they are able to meet the above requirements.
As you know, the situation with COVID-19 continues to evolve. Gilmour Photography’s safety protocols will be reviewed and may be modified by Gilmour Photography as appropriate to ensure compliance with public health guidance. We will keep you updated with any further changes.
We appreciate your cooperation as we are all in this together to ensure a safe and healthy return to our vibrant photography life.
