Navigating The New Normal

We've adapted the way that we operate in order to adhere to a "New Normal" and to bring you the same relaxing experience in a safe and comfortable environment. On this page, we'd love to share with you some of the things that we're doing to be extra diligent. With genuine wellbeing at the heart of Nita Lake Lodge, here is our commitment to guests, staff, and the community:

Welcoming Back International Guests

As of September 7, 2021, fully vaccinated foreign nationals will be eligible to enter Canada for discretionary (non-essential) reasons, such as tourism; however, these individuals must:

  • be fully vaccinated: a traveller must have received, and show proof of, the full series of a vaccine — or combination of vaccines — accepted by the Government of Canada at least 14 days prior to entering Canada
  • Currently, those vaccines are manufactured by Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, AstraZeneca/COVISHIELD, and Janssen (Johnson & Johnson) 
  • have a valid pre-arrival COVID-19 molecular test result taken no more than 72 hours before their scheduled flight or their arrival at the land border crossing, or a previous positive test result taken between 14 and 180 days before departure to Canada.  Antigen tests, often called “rapid tests,” are not accepted
  • be asymptomatic
  • submit their mandatory information via ArriveCAN (App or website), including proof of vaccination in English or French and a quarantine plan. Kindly note that Nita Lake Lodge is not a quarantine hotel. 
  • be admissible under the Immigration and Refugee Protection Act, and
  • take a test on arrival, if selected

In This Together

Here's What You Can Do

The Provincial Health Officer, Dr. Bonnie Henry, and her team have done an incredible job in helping British Columbia to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. By adhering to their advice and recommendations, you can help us to mitigate the risk of exposure. We encourage you to join us in adopting the following safety measures:

Hand Washing

Wash your hands often with soap and water for at least 20 seconds. Using soap and water is the single most effective way of reducing the spread of infection. Use alcohol-based hand sanitizer if soap and water are not available

Wear A Mask

currently required for people 12 and older in all indoor public areas of Nita Lake Lodge. Masks are available to purchase from the Front Desk for your convenience.

Monitor For Symptoms

If you develop symptoms, you will need to self-isolate for a minimum of 10 days so you do not potentially spread the virus to others.

Caring For The Planet

Our Pledge For The Environment

As well as working diligently to adhere to the “new normal”, Nita Lake Lodge is going above and beyond by ensuring that cleaning waste and expired PPE is discarded responsibly and sustainably. Our partners, Green Circle Salons, have launched a program, which manages the disposal of protective gear such as masks and santizing wipes, creating clean renewable energy, which powers homes and businesses. The leftover ash from this process can be used as filler in asphalt and various construction items, like brick.
