Help limit the spread of covid-19
In order to travel responsibly, we're asking both locals and visitors 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.
We are following Provincial Health Officer (PHO) guidance in our destination:
- Masks in public indoor settings a personal choice. Masks are recommended in public indoor settings for all people 12 and older who are not yet fully vaccinated.
- Normal social contact
- If you or anyone in your family feels sick stay home and get tested immediately
Looking for more info? Our staff at the Visitor Information Centre can help answer any of your questions.
Share The Revy Rules with friends, family and neighbours so we can all embrace #TheRealStoke together.
2. Give other people space.
Physical distancing is not required in public indoor settings and the Provincial Health Officer is now recommending normal social contact. However, some people might still feel less comfortable in tight situations. Please continue to remain vigilant, be patient, and help to keep yourself and others safe.
3. Masks indoors are a personal choice.
Masks are recommended in public indoor settings for all people 12 and older who are not yet fully vaccinated. The mask mandate order under the Emergency Program Act will be lifted July 1 and no proof of vaccination will be needed.
- You're fully vaccinated 14 days after dose 2
- Some people may choose to continue to wear a mask after they're fully vaccinated and that's okay
Masks are available, free of charge, at the Revelstoke Visitor Information Centre.
4. Sanitization & Touch Points.
Practicing diligent hand-washing hygiene is one of the best ways we can all 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 2020 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!
5. Respect each business' covid safety rules.
While the Province of BC has moved into Step 3, there may still be businesses who wish to follow enhanced safety protocols. We ask that you respect these business' wishes if you wish to be a patron.
All businesses are now transitioned into using communicable disease prevention guidance from WorkSafeBC.
6. Be patient, practical, and kind.
Winter is going to look a little different this year. Our frontline staff are following protocols and doing their best to serve you. 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. We hope to be able to continue to share our wild spaces, small town charm, and big mountain terrain.
