The BC Hotel Association says it will be working with the provincial government to keep business flowing in the wake of new province-wide COVID-19 restrictions announced Thursday.

Meetings of up to 50 people are still allowed to be held during the new restrictions, which are in effect until Dec. 7, and BCHA president and CEO Ingrid Jarrett hopes that will help the industry.

“We are working with government to ensure the meetings, which are allowed to continue, are well scripted to mitigate cancellations,” Jarrett said in an industry update sent to stakeholders on Friday morning. “We will continue to update and support on this as this develops.”

The BCHA is also focusing on making sure the ski season is as successful as possible as the slopes open around the province.

“We know that these restrictions are particularly challenging to businesses in ski destinations that would typically be heading into peak season right now,” she said.

“We continue to support the ski industry with our knowledge and capacity and partnership with go2HR to support safety plans, protocol training and to support a safe and successful ski season.”
