Background

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 February 2020 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.
