The following are measures that we have implemented to ensure your wellbeing while you travel with us. We will continue to adapt these measures in accordance with changes made by municipal, provincial and federal authorities in Canada, as well as the global protocols established for tour operators by the World Travel and Tourism Council.
Summer 2021 Tour Departures
Given the Canadian border restrictions, and vaccination rollout schedules globally, we will operate a limited number of tours this summer, in late September only. You can find more information here.
COVID-19 Vaccination Requirements
In line with the Governments of British Columbia and Alberta‘s proof of vaccination requirements, all travellers will be required to show proof of vaccination to join a Moose tour. Travellers that do not show accepted proof will be unable to join.
Moose Reservations and Check-In Desk
Our Reservations and Check-In Desk is not currently open to visit in person, but note that you can of course interact with us online or by telephone
- Self-Assessment – we will ask travellers to not join our tour if they are exhibiting signs and/or symptoms of COVID-19, or have been exposed to the virus within a 14-day period prior to our tour departing
- Mask wearing is required at check-in
- Hand sanitizer will be available at check-in
- Proof of vaccination required at boarding – travellers will be asked to show proof of vaccination as per the Governments of British Columbia and Alberta’s requirements (see above). Travellers that do not show accepted proof will be denied boarding.
- Screening questions at boarding – travellers will be asked a series of questions about their health and travel restrictions as it relates to COVID-19, and they may not be allowed to board depending on their answers
- Temperature checks at boarding – travellers will be asked to submit to a non-contact temperature check, and travellers with a reading of 38C or higher may not be allowed to board
Procedures On Tour
- Enhanced vehicle cleaning – our buses will be thoroughly cleaned prior to each tour departure. There will be regular vehicle cleaning during the tour, with particular attention paid to high touch areas such as seats, hand rails, door and window handles, and luggage racks.
- Social distancing where mandated – travellers will need to practise social distancing where required by local mandate or a local business
- Mandatory mask wearing at times – travellers will need to wear non-medical masks at all times while on board our bus, at all times where required by government mandate. This is currently everywhere indoors in public places in both BC and Alberta. Travellers will need to supply their own masks.
- Hygienic behaviour encouraged – hand sanitizer will be available on our buses, and our road crew will actively encourage its use, alongside reminding everyone to practise regular hand washing. We will also ask/remind travellers to sneeze and cough into a cloth or their elbow.
- Daily screening questions and temperature checks – every morning and evening, travellers will be asked a series of questions about their health as it relates to COVID-19, and will need to submit to a non-contact temperature check. If any traveller shows signs or symptoms of COVID-19, we will contact local health authorities and will follow their directions on how to proceed.
- Activity procedures – our activity partners may have similar procedures to the above. Note that some activities may not be available as a direct result of the pandemic.
All of our accommodation partners have special COVID-19 procedures in place. Click the links for details:
