What the City of New Westminster is Doing

The City has implemented our Pandemic Response Plan.

This 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 will continue to monitor and share information with the public through its various communication channels as the situation changes.
