Help limit the spread of covid-19
In order to travel responsibly this summer, we're asking both locals and visitors alike to follow The Revy Rules.
Find out what our business community is doing to be ready for your visit, and learn more about how you can adhere to this new normal!
When you arrive in Revelstoke, keep an eye out for The Revy Rules posters around town.
Mask Up Revy! We are now recommending the use of masks in our indoor public spaces or crowded places
Looking for more info? Our staff at the Visitor Information Centre can help answer any of your questions. Feel free to share with friends, family and neighbours so we can all embrace #TheRealStoke together.
1. Physical Distancing (2m)
This summer it's essential that we continue to practice social distancing and keep 2 metres (or one ski length) away from others. Remain vigilant, be patient, and help to keep yourself and others safe this summer. We are asking visitors and local residents to wear masks when they can't maintain physical distancing. This includes indoor places and outdoor crowded spaces.
2. Minimize Numbers
While we want everyone to be able to come and enjoy our wonderful mountain town, now is not the time for large group travel. Work to restrict your group to limited numbers and travel with people you have already been in close quarters with. Please have only ONE person from your group enter our essential services (such as grocery stores, liquor stores, banks, etc.)
3. Sanitization & Touch Points
Practicing diligent hand-washing hygiene is one of the best ways we can all work together to prevent the spread of infection. Businesses throughout Revelstoke have mandatory sanitation stations in place for your health, safety and convenience. Please remember to wash and sanitize your hands as you enter and leave different businesses around town.
Did you know Monashee Spirits Distillery was one of the first distillers in BC to offer hand sanitizer to help flatten the curve? Back in March they stepped up to fill the gap in sanitizer availability which is a by-product of their distillation process. Keep an eye out for their sanitizer in businesses throughout town!
Measures have been put in place to minimize the amount of contact we have with one another. Plexiglass is installed at the front desk areas of the majority of Revelstoke's accommodation providers, hands free door openers are fitted on the doors of many local businesses, and restaurants continue to offer pick-up and delivery. Please remember to only touch things when necessary.
4. Respiratory Etiquette
Now is the perfect time to work on the lessons we teach our children. When out in public, remember to cough and sneeze into your elbow in respect of the people around you.
5. Avoid Touching Your Face
This may be the most challenging rule of all. Did you know the average adult touches their face around sixteen times an hour?! We couldn't believe it either... until we started keeping track. Touching your face significantly increases the risk of contracting and transmitting viruses. Let's all work to be mindful of our intent to keep our hands away from our faces.
6. Stay Home If Sick
If you are feeling unwell or have any cold or flu symptoms, please stay home and plan to reschedule your visit for another time! Our businesses have introduced new cancellation policies to ensure you don't miss out on visiting Revy.
7. Be Kind
Remember, we're all in this together. Kindness always matters.
This note was left by an anonymous local in Revelstoke’s downtown and conveys exactly what #TheRealStoke is all about. Our goal is to welcome you back and share our mountains, parks, and trails with you safely this summer.
Stay Up To Date
As the health and safety of our visitors and our community is our number one priority, Revelstoke businesses, activity providers, restaurants, and accommodations have worked diligently to prepare for reopening by following provincial guidelines and industry best practices. All activity providers have created additional safety measures as well as implemented provincially approved guidelines for cleaning and physical distancing to keep you safe. Due to limited space and modified group sizes, please call ahead to find out if there are additional guidelines to follow in advance of your trip.
We encourage you to plan ahead this summer! Head to our What's Open page to find out what local businesses, attractions and trails are open so you can book online.
We look forward to welcoming you to our mountain town!
