Changes in Effect September 20th 2021

It is important for all our guests to be aware that the province of Alberta have introduced new regulations to limit the spread of COVID-19.

Starting Monday, September 20th, we are pleased to welcome vaccinated guests to dine in the Juniper Bistro.

Until October 25th, you must show proof of having received your first dose of COVID-19 vaccine at least 14 days prior to your visit. After October 25th, you will need to show proof of having both doses. This does not apply to children under the age of 12 or those with a medical note of exemption.

Your proof of vaccination must show your name and be presented with matching photo ID. It can be a paper or digital record. Find out more about the requirements and ways to access your vaccine record here: https://www.alberta.ca/covid-19-public-health-actions.aspx

Alternatively, you may provide a negative result from either a rapid antigen or PCR test taken within the previous 72 hours. These tests must be conducted through a private provider; at this time, we cannot accept test results obtained through AHS.  Learn more.

To help us seat you in a timely manner, you may wish to arrive at the Bistro five minutes ahead of your reservation time. We thank you in advance for your patience and understanding as we implement procedures to create a safer dining environment for all our guests.

Guests attending meetings and events in our function spaces will receive information on requirements for vaccination records or testing via their group organizer.


Masks Are Mandatory in Alberta

Guests are required to wear a mask in all common areas of the hotel, including:

  • Lobby and Front Desk area
  • Hallways
  • Public washrooms
  • The Juniper Bistro & Patio

Masks are not required in other outdoor areas around the hotel, such as the picnic tables.

When dining at Juniper Bistro, we ask that you wear your mask until you are seated, and any time you leave your table during your visit. While sat at your table, you are welcome to remove it and enjoy your meal!

Young children and individuals with certain medical needs are exempt from wearing a mask. If you are exempt on medical grounds, we appreciate you letting our staff know at the earliest opportunity so that we don’t remind you unnecessarily. Learn more about exemptions.

Our staff will verbally remind anyone not wearing a mask in a required area. Failure to comply with any hotel policy may result in removal from the premises and confrontational behaviour towards any member of staff will not be tolerated.

Mask wearing can have a significant impact on community transmission of Covid-19. By wearing your mask you protect others, including those who may be unable to wear one for medical reasons. Thank you for your support in keeping our community safe and Banff’s businesses open.

Need a mask? Just ask! We have complimentary single-use masks available at the Front Desk and Bistro.
