While it has been a tough 18 months for the hospitality business, we are prepared for this next challenge in upholding the new Public Health Order.
Proof of Vaccination Provincial Public Health Order: Effective September 13, Proof of Vaccination which requires a Vaccine Card and Photo ID upon entry for anyone aged 12 and up is now applicable for:
- Dining in the Pub Bar & Grill
- Dining on the Pub outdoor patio
- Attending functions in our Park Place Lodge meeting rooms
Please keep in mind that for those who are unvaccinated, you are still welcome to pick up takeout orders from the Pub Bar & Grill
In addition, while masks in common areas of the hotel still required (see below), the Proof of Vaccine requirement does not apply to guests staying at the hotel or to utilize hotel amenities including:
- Hotel Pool & Hot Tub
- Hotel Fitness Room
- Hotel Room Service
- Accessing Hotel Spirits Cold Beer & Wine Shop
Thank you for understanding as we enter this next phase of Covid restrictions.
BC’s Interior Region Restrictions: As of August 21, 2021, the BC Government has placed new restrictions for all of BC’s Interior Region which includes Fernie. Travel is still allowed, but safely. We anticipate these restrictions will remain in place until mid to late October.
NEW Restrictions now in place:
- Masks mandatory in public indoor spaces for those aged 12 and older
- New restrictions on indoor and outdoor exercise / fitness classes & programs
- Gatherings in vacation rentals are limited to no more than one additional household or 5 additional guests.
- Organized indoor gatherings (e.g. weddings, funerals, seated events) are limited to 50 people and outdoor limited to 100 people. Both require a COVID Safety Plan
- Indoor personal gatherings are limited to 10 guests or one additional household.
- Outdoor personal gatherings are limited (e.g. private BBQs, block parties) are limited to 50 people.
Travelers to Fernie are highly encouraged to travel safely, follow health orders and any health protocols such as distancing. Please consider rebooking if not feeling well to keep cases from further increasing in the Interior Region of BC. We are following or exceeding all provincial health and safety requirements. We’re slowly returning to pre-pandemic service levels and addressing capacity challenges as we move forward together.
We are welcoming reservations for what we expect to be a safe, fun and exciting summer in Fernie. Please visit our vacation specials page and give our reservations team a call at 1-888-381-7275 when you are ready to book a Fernie vacation.

As a final note, we kindly ask that all guests are patient and courteous towards our team. Also please expect a new way of experiencing Fernie and the Park Place Lodge as we progress through the government protocols and new safe ways of offering our services. This includes adjusted operating hours as well as limited drink and food menus. We have also added new protocols and our service team has extra health and safety responsibilities, this may impact the style or speed of service. Our goal is create a safe and enjoyable environment for our guests as well as staff. We are doing our best to try and get it right and would be thrilled if you are willing to share your feedback.
