Proof of vaccination required to visit Radium Hot Springs

The province of British Columbia recently amended provincial health orders to include swimming pools on its list of businesses where proof of vaccination is required.

Effective December 27, 2021, patrons aged 12 and older are required to show proof of full vaccination and government issued identification (18+ only) to enter Radium Hot Springs.

British Columbia’s provincial health orders do not include any cards or documents that allow patrons to be exempt from showing proof of vaccination. Neither proof of a medical exemption nor proof of a negative COVID-19 test will be accepted at Radium Hot Springs.

All Canadian provinces and territories have created secure QR coded vaccine records. Please download your vaccine record prior to visiting.

Out-of-province and federally-issued proof of vaccination records can be read by the BC Vaccine Card Verifier app. International travelers can show proof of vaccination provided by their home country.

Parks Canada does not record or store personal information. Repeat visitors will be required to show their identification and proof of vaccination prior to each visit.

By order of B.C.’s medical officer of health, wearing a mask remains mandatory in public indoor spaces for patrons aged 5 and up. At Radium Hot Springs, this includes the lobby, dry hall and change rooms when entering and exiting the facility. Masks are not effective when wet and may be stowed in your locker while showering, traversing the wet hall, and soaking.

The health and safety of staff and visitors remains our top priority. Parks Canada is following the guidance of public health authorities and continues to make every effort to limit the spread of COVID-19.
