The heli-skiing company Canadian Mountain Holidays said they got notified today that a recent guest has tested positive for COVID-19.

CMH is asking its staff, guests and any party that may have come into contact with the guest to self-isolate and if they begin to experience symptoms to reach out to local health care providers.

CMH is one of the largest heli-skiing companies in Canada with multiple lodges across the province. Due to the COVID-19 crisis, the company suspended operations on March 16, the same day the guest who later tested positive for coronavirus left.

The company said they are working closely with the BC Centre for Disease Control as the situation unfolds and are trying to map out where the guest might have gone in Revelstoke and who might have come in contact.

CMH confirmed that the guest stayed at the Regent Hotel.

In Canada, there are 898 cases and 12 people have died.
