We're Safely Opening our Doors
Thank you to our community for helping to stop the spread of COVID-19 in Banff. Everyone has worked diligently to control the virus, allowing the Town to gradually reopen. We are ready to safely welcome back visitors in a measured approach with significant safety protocols to keep our residents safe. The 100 and 200 blocks of Banff Avenue will be closed to vehicles June 5 – September 11. This will create a pedestrian zone, allowing for greater space to maintain physical distancing and assist local businesses. Learn more at banff.ca/COVID.
Banff National Park increases services June 1
Changes to visitor services in Banff National Park as a result of COVID-19 remain in effect. Starting June 1, visitors will be permitted to access some trails, day use areas, and green spaces. All camping facilities remain closed until at least June 21, 2020, while Parks Canada assesses whether and how these services might resume. Group activities and public events will be prohibited until further notice. All existing reservations set to take place prior to June 21, 2020, will be automatically cancelled and refunded in full.
Critical services will continue to be delivered, including highway maintenance, fire response, dam operations and water management on historic waterways, avalanche control, among others.
