Since the pandemic took hold, Destination BC’s approach has been guided by a three-phases: Response, Recovery, Resilience—principles which will continue to guide us as we navigate the changes ahead, together.
BC’s Restart Plan, announced on May 6, outlines how government will work closely with public health officials, businesses and labour organizations to lift restrictions in phases, gradually allowing for more social and economic activity. We have updated our efforts to align with this Plan, and will continue to work in lock-step with our government partners every step of the way.
At the same time, we will continue to support BC’s tourism industry by providing access to resources and tools, training programs, program modifications, and insights for small- and medium-sized enterprises in our industry, throughout the transition.
We encourage you to look through our Response, Recovery, Resilience approach and stay up to date on the latest information we have, and are working from, through joining our industry calls on Thursdays, subscribing to our weekly newsletter, and following our corporate social media channels.
If you have symptoms and may have been exposed to COVID-19, use the BC COVID-19 Self-Assessment Tool, developed with the BC Ministry of Health, to help determine whether you may need further assessment or testing for the virus. You can complete the assessment for yourself, or on behalf of someone else, if they are unable to.
To arrange for further assessment or testing, call your local primary care provider or 8-1-1, or for deaf or hard of hearing call 7-1-1.
In partnership with the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, BC’s Ministry of Health, and other industry partners, we have created an FAQ. This will be continually updated, providing information from BC, national, and international partners to give you the information you need as it relates to travel and tourism. It will help you answer questions from your staff, visitors, and partners.FAQs
