Covid Ops Status Update Oct 29, 2021
Covid-19 Updated Operations Status for Winter 2021/2022
Updated October 29, 2021
Winter is fast approaching and we’re seeing the continuation of Covid infections across the province and the world. Our very busy summer season has been winding down, some of the crews have been undergoing our usual recurrent training at the Prince George Ops Centre. The heli-ski and avalanche season will soon be upon us and given that it’s forecasted as another La Nina winter, we’re again expecting lots of snow on the BC mountaintops and a busy winter of flying.
As the Gov’t of Canada, Province of BC and Transport Canada travel restrictions evolve, so must our Covid safety protocols in order to protect our personnel and our clients, to reduce the risk of transmission and infection. Our winter crews and operational support have been busy ensuring their Covid vaccination status is complete for their November deadlines.
