COVID-19 (Coronavirus Update)

(Helmcken Falls, Canada's 4th highest)

Like you, we’re passionate about exploring BC. But now is not the time to travel. Please stay home and follow the advice of health authorities.

Do your part now, so we can all explore BC again later. In the meantime, find the official links below for the most up-to-date information. For tourism industry updates about COVID-19, please visit Destination BC’s corporate website, here.

Clearwater, the Gateway to Wells Gray Park, is a small and caring community located in the heart of an expanse of beautiful Canadian wilderness— an area of wide open spaces where endless adventure awaits. Please help us “flatten the curve” by following the BC Provincial Health Guidelines for COVID-19, including practising safe social distancing, staying home, and self-isolating as needed.
