Open Businesses in Banff

Updated 11:20 a.m. May 29, 2020

Thanks to everyone’s efforts around staying home and staying safe, Alberta’s health care system is coping with COVID-19 and incremental steps are being taken to reopen some businesses and services.

Each stage of the provincial relaunch will depend on our collective ability to respect guidelines outlined by Alberta’s chief medical officer and to keep infection numbers low. Enhanced infection prevention and control measures, including physical distancing requirements of at least 2 metres, will remain in place throughout all stages, and all workplaces are expected to develop and implement policies and procedures to address the COVID-19 pandemic prior to re-opening or continuing operations after May 1, 2020.

Conditions for Relaunch

As Alberta considers relaxing public health measures, the situation will be evaluated and monitored, and the course adjusted as needed. To ensure a safer reopening, the following elements must be in place for the first stage of Alberta’s relaunch:

  • enhance our nation-leading testing capacity at the highest level in Canada 
  • robust and comprehensive contact tracing, aided by technology, to quickly notify people who may have been exposed
  • support for people who test positive to enable effective isolation and contain spread 
  • stronger international border controls and airport screening, especially for international travellers
  • rules and guidance for the use of masks in crowded spaces, like mass transit
  • strong protections for the most vulnerable, including those in long-term care, continuing care and seniors lodges
  • a rapid response plan in the event of possible outbreaks of COVID-19

The Town of Banff encourages all residents to stay vigilant and not let our efforts to prevent the spread of COVID-19 go to waste. While we face a long road to recovery, our efforts are making a difference. Now is the time to keep following public health measures, practicing physical distancing and good hygiene, and acting responsibly.
