Over the coming weeks and months, as restrictions of travel begin to ease during this active pandemic, Delta businesses are preparing to welcome customers back while keeping our community safe.
We want the summer to be enjoyable for everyone and to see our businesses thrive again, respecting the health guidelines by the province as well as physical distancing while out and about, in our shops, services and restaurants.
Here’s what Delta business are doing to protect you:
All accommodators, restaurants, shops, and stores are implementing provincially approved guidelines for cleaning and physical distancing to keep staff and patrons safe.
All activity providers have created additional safety measures as well as implemented provincially approved guidelines for cleaning and physical distancing to keep staff and visitors safe.
Due to limited space and modified group sizes, please call ahead to activity providers to see if there are additional items you are required to bring in advance of your trip.
Here’s what we’re asking you to do to help keep our locals and staff safe:
If you or anyone in your group has been sick in the previous week or have flu like symptoms, PLEASE STAY HOME.
When stopping at gas stations, grocery stores, and liquor stores, please consider sending only one person from your group into the store at a time.
Bring your own personal protective equipment with you if you can (hand sanitizer and mask)
Make a reservation at restaurants, or consider opting for take out to eat outside.
Respect 2m physical distancing recommendations when in a public space.
Hotels and resorts are included in Phase 3 of BC’s Restart Plan and all Delta accommodators have resumed operations with guidelines in place.
