Port Coquitlam joins Surrey, Delta and West Vancouver, closing all libraries, rec centres and other municipal facilities

BY , Mar 16, 2020 7:35 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Port Coquitlam has joined Surrey, Delta and West Vancouver in closing all libraries, rec centres and other municipal facilities and scaling back civic services in order to contain the spread of COVID-19.

The city of Vancouver is expected to make an announcement about its services this afternoon.

This follows cancellation of many events over the weekend, the closure of 10 casinos operated by Great Canadian Gaming and several ski resorts, including Mount Washington on Vancouver Island and Whistler Blackcomb, and the closure or reduction in hours of many stores and malls, including Pacific Centre in downtown Vancouver.

Public schools are on a two week spring break but most post secondary institutions across the province announced plans over the weekend to switch to online classes, while BC Ferries cut several sailings due to limited demand.
