True Key Hotels & Resorts Staycation
stay·ca·tion – a vacation spent in one’s home country rather than abroad.
Recently, the ‘staycation’ has been steadily becoming a popular option for people wanting to experience the natural beauty of British Columbia. Due to the evolving situation of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the idea of a staycation makes more sense than ever. The general advice from medical experts is to avoid large public confined gatherings BUT also to get on with life and live it to its fullest while applying simple personal hygiene practices.
There are still many ways to enjoy a holiday: from a relaxing weekend getaway to sightseeing and exploring. If you are still thinking about getting away this year, view this as an opportunity to discover all the amazing destinations in your own ‘backyard’. Plan your True Key staycation today!
TRUE KEY UPDATE
As cases of the Coronavirus increase and news updates change by the hour, we wanted to share with our valued guests what True Key Hotels & Resorts is doing at all of our properties to ensure their safety and comfort.
First, all housekeeping staff are required to wear rubber gloves while cleaning guestrooms and common areas and since the first mention of COVID-19, our common areas at all properties have hand sanitizers in public areas.
To date, there have been no confirmed cases of COVID-19 at any True Key managed properties or in the communities we operate in. Our properties are located in small, uncrowded communities in open, natural environments where the air is fresh and clean.
True Key Resorts and Hotels take the well-being of our guests very seriously and we want to ensure that every guest feels safe and comfortable when staying with us. Whether you have questions or concerns or would like to talk to someone about booking your next trip, we’d love to hear from you.

Whether you are travelling to one of our properties, or in general, there are some basic and easy steps you can take to maintain your health.
Wash Your Hands
First, wash your hands often and thoroughly. Hand-washing can reduce the risk of respiratory infections by 16 percent. Hand sanitizers are the next best thing, but ensure that you use one with more than 60 percent alcohol and that it dries completely on your hand, otherwise germs can thrive.
Pack a First Aid Kit
No matter what you’re trying to combat while travelling, having a first aid kit with you is an important part of packing. Your first aid kit should include:
- Your current medications
- Antibiotic ointment
- A fever or pain reducer
- Motion sickness remedy
- Medicine for allergic reactions
- Medication for stomach aches
- Cold and flu medication
- Rehydration tablets
Get Lots of Sleep and Water
Lastly, make sure to get enough water and sleep. Water can help to alleviate everything from dehydration, to constipation, to jet lag. Meanwhile, being well-rested is important no matter where you are, as our immune system needs sleep to stay strong and fight off the common cold. Additionally, in the long-term, getting lots of sleep helps reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure, diabetes and more.
