On Friday, Revelstoke Mountain Resort issued a statement outlining the measures they would be taking against the spread of COVID-19.

As a popular destination for travellers, the resort could be at risk of spreading the virus. RMR is implementing a higher level of cleaning and sanitation standards as a result.

Additional steps include more frequent cleanings of bathrooms, the installations of new hand sanitizing units, the addition of hygiene instruction signs in bathrooms, changes to lift loading procedures to allow for social distancing, the removal of single lines in chairlift lines, twice daily gondola cabin disinfections, and the cancellation of the Spring Melter event previously scheduled for April 19.

Their closing day of April 19 will remain unchanged, except for the cancellation of the event. They will also be easing cancellation and booking policies.

RMR intends to monitor the situation, implement recommendations from WorkSafeBC and the BC Centre for Disease Control, and keep their website up to date with any new information.
