A:As with any pandemic, we must all work together to stop the spread of the virus. Symptoms of illness can take up to 14 days to appear. To prevent the spread of illness, we encourage all guests to:
Wash hands frequently, scrubbing thoroughly for 20-30 seconds
Avoid contact with eyes, nose and face with unwashed hands
Cover coughs and sneezes with the elbow or shoulder
Sanitize frequently touched items such as cell phones, room key cards and car keys regularly
Use caution when visiting areas with large amounts of people, including increased hand-washing and monitoring for symptoms
When in Alberta, individuals experiencing flu-like symptoms should remain self-isolated and call Healthlink 8-1-1 to be advised of next steps by a health professional. If you are severely ill and require immediate medical attention call 911 and inform them that you may have COVID-19. Remember: influenza and the common cold are far more likely causes of respiratory illness among travellers!
