COVID-19 and the City of White Rock

Last Updated March 26, 2020

COVID-19 (novel coronavirus) has now been declared a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. The City of White Rock wants to ensure that residents stay healthy and informed during this emergency situation, and maintain two metres social distance from each other to stop the spread of the virus.

Like all municipalities in B.C., we take our direction on this important health matter from Fraser Health, the BC Health Ministry and the Public Health Agency Canada.

The BC Centre for Disease Control indicates a growing number of cases of COVID-19, and a number of related deaths, in B.C. The goal now is to contain the spread to allow health care responders and hospitals to treat COVID-19 patients and other patients as needed.

If you are feeling unwell or have health conditions that may be impacted by respiratory illness, health authorities suggest staying at home. The B.C. government is providing a self-assessment tool that you can use to help determine if you have symptoms of COVID-19.

For access to City services, please use our online services, or contact us through email or telephone.

And, finally, please be safe, everyone. Take care of each other and remember we will all get through this together.
