Interior Health is advising anyone who attended a congregate event at Big White Ski Resort on March 29 that they have put themselves at risk of contracting COVID-19 and should monitor themselves closely for symptoms of COVID-19.
After four weeks of no new cases, and a successful immunization clinic on the mountain last weekend, Interior Health's Dr. Silvina Mema has declared the COVID-19 Community cluster at Big White Mountain contained.
It's been almost a month since Interior Health has reported a new case linked to the Big White COVID-19 Community Cluster. For the past three weeks, Interior Health has reported zero new cases, and at this point in time, zero remain active and/or in isolation.
Today we celebrate our 100-day guarantee, as part of our rebate 2020 season pass program. Plus, there are no new cases to report. Today truly is a good day to go skiing, especially with 20cm overnight.
With 18 cm of Okanagan Champagne Powder overnight, 35 cm this week and -5C in the forecast, it's shaping up to be a beautiful weekend ahead. This afternoon, we're pleased to report only one additional case has been added to the Big White Mountain COVID-19 Community Cluster. There are 11 active cases in isolation on or off mountain.
As we head into Family Day Long Weekend, we want to thank you for being such a big part of the Big White family, for supporting us through this pandemic, and for following along as we navigate the COVID-19 cluster linked to Big White mountain.
We’d like to take this opportunity to remind all visitors that masks are mandatory at Big White Ski Resort. You must wear a mask in all buildings, in lift lines, and when loading and unloading the lift. Failure to do so will result in removal of pass, which has happened on two occasions in the past 24 hours.
Today's update from Interior Health comes as a breath of fresh mountain air for the entire community at Big White Ski Resort. Since Tuesday's report, there has only been one additional case linked to the Big White Community Cluster with 15 remaining active and in isolation.
