COVID-19 information for visitors

As the province continues with its relaunch plan, we warmly welcome you back to Jasper.

We are encouraging visitors to come prepared with their own COVID-19 kit, including gloves, face masks and hand sanitizer. As per the provincial health recommendations, everyone is encouraged to wear a non-medical mask in public when it’s difficult to maintain a physical distance of two metres.

Jasper businesses have been working hard to put in place the appropriate measures to ensure the safest and best possible experience for guests and residents. Be prepared to wait in lines or change plans and respect all regulations set up by respective businesses. Remember to be patient as our business community adjusts to today’s normal. We are in this together.

Face masks, or face coverings, required in Jasper

As of August 4, face masks, or face coverings, are now required on Jasper's downtown sidewalks and in all public indoor spaces, following yesterday’s Municipal Council meeting.

Face coverings are required:

  • On the west side of Connaught Drive between Hazel Avenue and Aspen Avenue;
  • On Patricia Street between Hazel Avenue and Pyramid Lake Road;
  • On all connecting public sidewalks between those streets;
  • On all public sidewalks where a 2 metre distance cannot be maintained; and
  • In all public indoor spaces, including all businesses, facilities, patios and indoor areas that are open to the public.

Everyone will be required to wear a face covering that fully covers their nose, mouth and chin when in public spaces, including specified sidewalks, stores, facilities and public buildings.

There are several exceptions to the rule, including children under two, people prevented from wearing a face covering due to medical conditions, and people eating in restaurants while at assigned seating.
