Vancouver City Council to vote Monday on enhanced bylaw to provide for enforcement of emergency orders

BY , Mar 22, 2020 11:23 PM - REPORT AN ERROR

Vancouver City Council will convene on Monday for a Special Council Meeting to vote on an amendment to Vancouver’s emergency powers bylaw that will include enforcement of orders.

As directed by the provincial health officer, all businesses that remain open must ensure appropriate social distancing for staff and patrons.

Businesses that do not comply with this requirement will be subject to closure and fines.

In addition to previously-announced facilities and playground closures, the Vancouver Park Board will also today begin closing parking lots at high-traffic outdoor destinations.

These parking lot closures will be in full effect overnight. Beaches and parks remain open for now but could be closed in the future if people continue to gather in groups at these locations.
