COVID-19 in Vancouver

Wearing a mask is expected if you need to visit City, Park Board, and library facilities.

Continue to stay home if you’re sick, avoid large gatherings, and keep 2 m apart from others.

Stay strong, support local businesses, and keep following public health orders to help slow the spread of COVID-19.
