June 1st COVID-19 & Operations Update for Park Place Lodge & Fernie BC:
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, later this spring and summer season.
On Tuesday, May 25th, the BC Government ended the “Circuit Breaker” restrictions and announced a new 4-Step Restart Plan. We are currently in Step 1 and are hopeful we will enter Step 2 on June 15th and Step 3 on July 1st. Step 1 now allows for non-essential travel within your BC health region, small organized gatherings or meetings as well as both indoor and outdoor dining for groups up to 6 people.
This is a great first step and as we move forward to the next steps, there will be additional opportunities for Fernie to welcome travelers from other regions of British Columbia as well as other parts of Canada. While we aren’t quite there yet, we can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Book now for summer!
