At Kingston Destination Group we are committed to the safety and wellbeing of our guests and crew. As Canadians respond to growing global concern over the coronavirus causing the COVID-19 respiratory illness, we are taking action to ensure that visitors can confidently enjoy Kingston’s 1000 Islands sightseeing excursions and Trolley Tours this spring.
The Public Health Agency of Canada has advised Canadians to not widely cancel group gatherings, but instead to follow a precautionary approach: assessing each event, and making modifications that reduce the chance for viruses to spread. In keeping with their recommendations, we have made changes including:
- Passenger screening before boarding
- Hand sanitizer stations at boarding and onboard
- Full disinfectant application before every departure.
- Additional spot cleaning of high-touch surfaces on a frequent schedule.
- Increased access to hand sanitization stations
- Emphasis on preventative hygiene practices with our staff and guests.
As of March 13 there are no reported COVID-19 cases in Kingston or the 1000 Islands region, and the Public Health Agency of Canada continues to assess the public health risk associated with COVID-19 as low for Canada. We will continue to monitor the progress of the outbreak and be guided by expert information.
At Kingston Destination Group we are proud of our team’s proven commitment to maintaining an outstanding standard of cleanliness and safety. We are confident in our procedures and we look forward to welcoming guests aboard this year. Our 2020 season will begin operations as scheduled in one month: we look forward to welcoming guests in Kingston and the 1000 Islands beginning on April 10, 2020.
