Parks Canada has announced all National Parks are closed until further notice, with the highway remaining open.  That’s pretty straightforward for what it means for travel through the National Park (yes) and using trails or stopping at other sites (no), but how does that affect the Banff townsite?

I spoke with Banff Mayor Karen Sorensen to provide some clarity.  We also spoke about the social distancing situation within Banff, the municipal email and phone number for those needing assistance, and a shout-out to those working on the front line.
