April 22 COVID-19 & Operations Update
Thank you to all our regular customers inquiring about booking a stay or visiting our various outlets here at the Park Place Lodge. We value your continued support and patience as Park Place Lodge works with the community and province in addressing Covid-19. As with all of our tourism partners in the community and the province, we are asking travelers to help flatten the curve, now, so that we can safely travel when ready, this spring season.
As of Friday, April 23rd , the BC Government Non-essential travel ‘order’ is now in place until midnight May 25th for travel between 3 specific BC health regions. Travel into BC from other provinces and within health regions continues to be restricted as well, but is not enforced by an order.
Please keep in mind Fernie is still prepping for a safe and welcoming summer travel season. We can see the light at the end of the tunnel as more people are vaccinated, but we aren’t there quite yet. Book now for summer!
