Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise COVID-19 outbreak now at 56 cases
There are now 56 staff members at the Fairmont Chateau Lake Louise hotel with confirmed cases of COVID-19.
That's down from roughly 100 last week and largely thanks to the use of rapid testing, officials said in a statement Thursday.
The hotel has not been declared an outbreak by the province.
The Banff region has the highest rates of COVID-19 in the province, sitting at 1,866 per 100,000 population earlier this week, which equates to 251 cases.
The Town of Banff is offering a vaccination clinic for residents on Sunday and Monday.
An earlier version of this story said the Town of Banff had the highest rate of COVID-19 cases in the province, in fact it is the region of Banff that has the highest rate.
