Several cities and health authorities are suspending paid parking, especially for health-care workers, during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The City of Vancouver says it's temporarily suspending the enforcement of metered parking, residential permit parking and parking time limits, while enforcement will continue for parking spots designated for people with disabilities and other special zones.

The Vancouver Coastal Health Authority, Fraser Health Authority and Provincial Health Services Authority have also suspended pay parking at sites they own and operate.

Health Minister Adrian Dix says the suspension of paid parking at B.C. hospitals will also make it easier for people to avoid touching screens and buttons at payment kiosks that may have been touched by someone else.
