COVID-19 Safety Policy
With travel restrictions slowly being lifted, Discover Canada Tours is committed to ensuring that the safety of all our guests in addition to the communities that we visit is our top priority. We will be implementing a number of safety precautions on all our tours.
1. Tour Sizes
We are working with the provincial and federal governments to assess the number of passengers that we will be carrying per tour. Be assured that we will be following every regulation that is laid out.
2. Pre-Departure Checks
Before departing on any tour, we will be taking a number of precautions before guests are allowed to board the bus.
We will be doing a contactless check-in process. Details of the exact check-in process will be given to you on the day of your departure.
You will be required to answer a series of questions:
- Do you have a fever or a cough?
- Do you have a fever and difficulty breathing?
- Have you been refused boarding in the past 14 days due to a medical reason related to COVID-19?
- Are you the subject of a provincial/territorial or local public health order?
We will also be using a highly calibrated non-contact temperature gun to measure the temperatures of all guests. If you have a temperature of 37.3 degrees celsius you will not be able to board the bus.
Please adhere to the 6 feet rule when gathering at the departure point.
3. On-Tour Precautions
We will be taking strict precautions during the tour. All guests will be required to wear cloth or non-surgical face masks for the duration of the tour while on the coach or when it is impossible to maintain the 6-foot distance. There will be ample hand sanitizer available on all our coaches. We encourage all our guests to regularly use this sanitizer, especially after boarding the bus after visiting an attraction. We will be sanitizing the coaches on a daily basis by wiping down all contact surfaces.
We are enforcing that everyone on the bus is required to wear a mask. Please ensure that you bring your own mask. This is to ensure the safety of all our guests and your fellow travellers.
We encourage all guests to partake in keeping themselves and others safe. If you need to sneeze or cough, please do so into your elbow, wash your hands regularly, use hand sanitizer after visiting an attraction, keep your distance from other guests, at least 6 feet, and most importantly respect others.
If you or anyone in your group is experiencing symptoms, we will work directly with you to cancel or reschedule your tour.
4. Respecting and Supporting Host Communities
In addition to the safety of all our guests, the safety of the residents in the communities we visit is paramount and we expect all of our guests to adhere to the policies put in place in each community we visit.
It is also important to support the local business in the communities we visit. We ensure that all the destinations we visit we work with local suppliers to support them and grow their business. Help us to help other local businesses.
5. Our Staff
Employees receive daily wellness checks as well as perform regular self-assessments to ensure they are healthy and symptom-free.
As we have said, the safety and wellbeing of our guests are paramount. We look forward to seeing you on one of our tours soon.
