We are excited to have reached the point of encouraging British Columbians and our fellow Canadians to #exploreBCnow.   A re-opening toolkit for tourism operators has been developed by several provincial tourism organizations and we are happy to share this with you.

This Tourism Sector Restart Step 3 Toolkit  is designed as a guide for operators for Step 3, which starts July 1 and will run until at least September 7.  It includes:

  • summary of current guidelines
  • links to help operators with recruiting and training staff
  • information on topics such as the evolution of mask use from a requirement to recommendations, and changes to capacity restrictions for events and festivals
  • information on the marketing campaigns to help restart the visitor economy, and how to participate

One of the biggest shifts for operators in Step 3 is that COVID-19 Safety Plans are no longer required, and all workplaces will evolve to include communicable disease plans in their regular health and safety plan. To this end, go2HR is hosting a webinar July 5 from 2-3 p.m. on how to implement a communicable disease program. You can register here.
