Tourism DC says they are excited to announce the Visitor Information Centre located in the NAR Railway Station Museum will be opening for the 2020 season on July 1 at 9:30 am.
"The shortened season will run from July 1 until August 31. The VIC experienced a delayed opening due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and have used this additional time to implement strategies so that all policies can be followed to allow for safe operation of the facility for both staff and visitors,” says Jamee Case, visitor services manager with Tourism Dawson Creek.
These policies include enhanced cleaning procedures, physical distancing precautions and a building occupancy limit. The full COVID-19 Safety Plan will be available at the Centre. Although normal seasonal travel has been restricted during the pandemic, the staff at Tourism Dawson Creek have seen a recent increase in British Columbian’s exploring local and choosing to vacation in their home province.
“It is nice to see folks from Prince George, Kelowna and Kamloops making their way up the Alaska Highway for the first time, exploring a part of British Columbia that they otherwise may not have considered” said Barry Reynard, Assistant General Manager, Tourism Dawson Creek.
