Know Before You Go – COVID-19
Updated: January 11, 2021
As of November 19th, the Provincial Health Office is asking British Columbians to avoid all non-essential travel outside of their communities. We ask that you respect these guidelines and dream now, and visit Prince George later. For more information on the latest directives from the PHO click here.
In light of the extension of province-wide health orders and travel advisories by the Provincial Health Office due to the second wave of the pandemic, the Visitor Information Centre will remain physically closed but our visitor services team is ready to assist you virtually by phone at 250-562-3700 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Global Safety Stamp to Recognize Safe Travel Protocols
The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) has granted the use of its Safe Travels stamp to Tourism Prince George. This stamp allows travellers to easily recognize destinations and tourism businesses around the world that have adopted globally standardized health and hygiene protocols to ensure visitors have a safe and enjoyable experience.
Tourism stakeholders in the Prince George area can apply for use of the Safe Travels stamp either through Tourism Prince George or Northern BC Tourism Association. Eligible businesses can use the stamp for their own promotion once they have met the health and hygiene protocols outlined by the WTTC.
More information on the WTTC global protocols and the list of destinations and associations around the world using the stamp can be found here.
