Dear Valued Guests, Partners and Friends of The Club,
As of August 9th, 2021, the Government of Canada will allow fully vaccinated Americans to visit Canada.
We are thrilled to welcome back our US guests to the northern shores of Haida Gwaii. Below is important information regarding cross-border travel requirements for this season.
PROOF OF VACCINATION:
You must be FULLY VACCINATED, with a Government of Canada approved vaccine, with your second shot taken at least 14 days before arrival to be allowed into Canada.
FULLY VACCINATED TRAVELERS MUST:
- Provide proof of a negative PCR COVID-19 test within 72 hours prior to arrival
- Be asymptomatic
- Submit COVID-19 related information electronically through ArriveCAN prior to your arrival in Canada (Must be submitted within 72 hours before arrival)
- Have a paper or digital copy of their vaccination documentation
TRAVEL BACK TO THE USA:
All air travelers heading back to the U.S. must provide a negative Rapid Antigen COVID-19 Test within 72 hours of your flight. Test results take approximately 30-60 minutes for processing and documentation.
Where Can I Book My Rapid Antigen COVID-19 Test?
We recommend CVM Medical located at the US Departures section of the YVR Main Terminal (3211 Grant McConachie Way, Richmond, BC V7B 0A4), close to the entrance of the Fairmont Hotel.
For more information and to book your test in advance, please click here.
**Please keep in mind, weather and COVID testing delays can happen. Your safest option is to fly out the next day. If that does not work for you, we recommend booking your flight no earlier than 7pm.
Please note – currently, the negative Rapid Antigen COVID-19 Test requirement does not extend to land crossing.
WCFC COVID SAFETY PLAN:
Our lodges have stringent COVID-19 health and safety measures in place to ensure the safest environment for everyone. For more on how we are keeping guests and staff safe this summer, please read our COVID-19 Safety Plan.
