Coronavirus (COVID-19)

Our pandemic response plan provides guidelines and actions to manage infection disease outbreaks. Containing the spread of the virus is a priority, and City maintenance staff have increased their cleaning protocols to ensure that high touch surfaces (door knobs, hand rails etc.) are being cleaned and disinfected frequently. Additionally, we will be providing hand sanitizer stations in our facilities.

Signage promoting handwashing and precautions to prevent the spread of the virus are being posted in strategic locations within city facilities and open spaces.
  • The City of New Westminster would like to recognize staff members who have gone above and beyond in supporting the City's response during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

    While all staff have been working extra hard over the past few month, there are individuals and teams who have stepped up in extraordinary ways. the Staff Heroes Award would like to recognize the following individuals for their exceptional accomplishments.
