Surrey's Response to COVID-19

As the province moves through its Restart Plan, we’re taking a phased approach that will see programs, services and facilities start to reopen once we are clear that:

  • we can protect the health, safety and well-being of our staff and residents;
  • the public demand is there; and
  • we’ve determined the fiscal implications of any change.

City Hall continues to be by appointment only, while the Operations Centre is closed to the public. In the meantime, we encourage you to use the City’s online services.

For more information on our response to COVID-19, please refer to our 10-Point Action Plan to the COVID-19 Pandemic, which is updated every 2 weeks.

In February 2020, the World Health Organization (WHO) declared the new coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak a worldwide pandemic. The City continues to monitor and respond to the situation and will provide updates to ensure residents and City staff are kept informed and safe.

The City's Emergency Operations Centre is in constant dialogue with public health authorities, including Fraser Health and the BC Centre for Disease Control. See our 10 Point Action Plan for more information on our COVID-19 response. The Emergency Operations Centre has been activated since mid-February to ensure essential City services, such as water, sewers, police, and fire are maintained for the well-being and safety of our community, with measures put in place to keep our staff and front-line responders safe.

The City also has criteria in place to assess and manage facility or park closures as needed. Many City Services are still available online, by phone or email, and by appointment.
