COVID-19 Guidance for Businesses

Communicable Disease Prevention Plans

Communicable disease prevention focuses on basic risk reduction principles to reduce the risk of transmission of COVID-19 and other communicable diseases, such as norovirus and seasonal influenza.

Guidelines provided by WorkSafeBC are available to help businesses develop communicable disease prevention plans. Communicable disease plans do not need to be written, posted or approved by WorkSafeBC.

View the communicable disease prevention guidance from WorkSafeBC here.

Remember that the provincial health and safety guidelines can be viewed as the minimum requirements to be met. You know your operation, customers, community, and your staff members better than anyone. If extra steps are required to help people feel safe, take them.

BSAFE - Online Health & Safety Training Program

BC Safety Assured For Everyone (BSAFE) is a new and free online health and safety training program offered in partnership with the provincial government and go2HR. The program is designed to ensure foundational health and safety knowledge in BC’s tourism and hospitality businesses in order to keep everyone safe as we move through the COVID-19 pandemic. Both employers and employees are encouraged to register for the online program. Learn more about BSAFE here.

Recommended Key Messaging

At this time, Tourism Whistler recommends the following key messaging:

  • Please be patient. Businesses across the hospitality sector are struggling with ongoing labour challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic. These labour challenges are resulting in some businesses needing to modify their available services and hours of operation. We ask all visitors to Whistler to be understanding and respectful of the current situation, and we thank you for being kind to employees who are working extremely hard in these challenging conditions.

  • Visitors are strongly encouraged to do their research ahead of time, to arrive with a plan, and to make restaurant and activity reservations in advance. When in-resort, visit for up-to-date information on local businesses, including hours of operation and periodic closures.

  • Know Before You Go: Information and resources for travellers is available at
