Coronavirus (COVID-19) Update


Updated May 8, 2020 at 3:00 pm 

Tourism Prince George is committed to the health and safety of our community, visitors and country.  We continue to monitor and share ongoing, relevant and reliably sourced information as it occurs regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19).

This is a challenging and complex time for all Canadians, and I am grateful for the strength and rapid response shown by all levels of Canadian government, health authorities, the tourism industry and other associations. We all have a role to play in staying informed and following the guidelines set out by provincial and federal agencies – to keep ourselves, our families, and our communities healthy.

Prince George is known for being a caring, giving community and if you are stranded and/or in need of some assistance please email or call our team in the links below and we are happy to assist.

Also, please continue to monitor this page and our social media channels (LinkedIn, Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram) for more information. We also encourage you to sign up to receive our special information bulletins here.

BC's Restart Plan

BC’s Restart Plan lays out a series of steps that we will take together to protect people and ensure that our province can come back from COVID-19 stronger than before. Under B.C.’s Restart Plan, government will work closely with public health officials, businesses and labour organizations to lift restrictions in phases, gradually allowing for more social and economic activity, while closely monitoring health information to minimize the risk to the public.

Restarting economic activity will look different in B.C. than in other jurisdictions, because only a small number of sectors in the province were closed by public health order. Many other provinces are just now reaching the level of safe operations B.C. has been able to maintain throughout the pandemic.
