The Rocky Mountains are among Canada’s most iconic landscapes. So it’s no wonder that people travel from around the world to come here for vacation. But with global travel restrictions still in place due to Covid-19, it’s the perfect time for everyone to explore their own backyards. Travel between provinces is currently discouraged, so Albertans have a rare opportunity to have their home mountains all to themselves.
Here’s a few reasons to pack up the car and spend your summer holiday in Jasper.
6 Safe hygiene protocols
Alberta’s phased re-opening is now underway, and local businesses have adapted their Covid-19 safety protocols. We encourage everyone to follow recommended guidelines, including to wash hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds; avoid touching your face; keep a “social distance” of two metres from other people; and bring their own hygiene kit with hand sanitizer and mask when visiting. We encourage you to be patient and flexible as we all navigate these unique and evolving circumstances. Remember: some experiences may have changed, but the mountains haven’t.
