COVID-19 Info

While adventures to Rossland call to you, it’s not the time to travel outside your community.

If you’re a BC resident, stay close to home and follow the latest health recommendations. If you’re from outside the province, we invite you to dream now and explore BC later. In the meantime, find the official links below for the most up-to-date information.

We will maintain this page daily to provide the most up-to-date information available. Additionally, we will post the latest developments and information in our News section.
