At Banff Gate Mountain Resort, we're committed to keeping you as up-to-date as possible about this health crisis.
The Banff council has passed a bylaw mandating the use of masks to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
The Mandatory Mask bylaw compels residents, visitors, and businesses to wear a mask or face covering in all public indoor settings.
This bylaw is intended to be temporary. It will come into effect as of August 7, 2020, at 12:00 p.m. There is no expiry date included in the proposed bylaw.
People will be expected to wear a face-covering in any part of an enclosed space to which the public can readily access.
"Public premises” means the interior area of any building or structure to which the public is invited or permitted access, either expressly or by implication regardless of whether a fee is charged for entry.
Common areas of hotels, motels, and other short-term rentals, such as lobbies, elevators, meeting rooms, or other common use facilities are included.

Are you considering an international trip? If so, read on. The CDC has issued a COVID-19 order that may impact your plans for re-entering the United States.
Effective January 26, 2021 travelers arriving in the U.S. must get tested for COVID-19 no more than 3 days before departing to the United States and show a negative test result to the airline before boarding OR 2) show documentation of recent recovery from COVID-19 to the airline before boarding.
This new order applies to all air passengers — including U.S. citizens and legal permanent residents — aged 2 years and older. It also applies regardless of the length of time spent outside of the United States.
Acceptable documentation of recovery from COVID-19 includes both a positive viral test result within 3 months of travel (or the time period specified in current CDC guidance) AND a letter from a healthcare provider or public health official stating that the passenger is cleared to end isolation.
Passengers who have tested positive for COVID-19 will need to delay their travel until they meet the criteria to end isolation; learn more here.
