COVID-19 (Coronavirus) Update

Kelowna Visitor Centre Update, April 8, 2021

Service Continues at Kelowna Visitor Centre:

Following a confirmed case of COVID-19 among a team member, the Kelowna Visitor Centre temporarily closed for a thorough cleaning and sanitization. We are in contact with public health and WorkSafeBC and any staff member who may have been exposed is self-isolating at home. The building is again open to the public, staffed with team members who were not directly exposed, and service continues with strong public health measures in place to protect our community and our team. Assistance and merchandise sales continue to be available online as well.

A reminder for those entering the Kelowna Visitor Centre:

  • Anyone entering the building must wear a mask, sanitize their hands upon entry, and maintain a safe distance.
  • All high touch surfaces within the building are sanitized using high quality disinfectant (Dyna Quat) every 1-2 hours.
  • Items such as the point-of-sale reader and iPad are sanitized after each customer use.
  • The building’s HVAC system exchanges air within the building for fresh air from outside 3-4 times per hour which is above industry standard.

Serving our community safely, doing our part to reduce transmissions, and protect our community is our priority. You can view our complete COVID-19 health and safety plan.

Thank you for your support and assistance allowing us to continue to safely serve our community. If you have any questions, please contact the Kelowna Visitor Centre team via the LiveChat bubble at the bottom of the screen, by phone at 250-861-1515 or email info@tourismkelowna.com.
