Like all Canadians and British Columbians, the people of White Rock have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, which has now officially entered the second wave.
Throughout the pandemic, first declared in March 2020, the City of White Rock has continued to provide essential services and has worked with all levels of government to provide residents and businesses with the best possible support.
We are encouraging the use of online services whenever possible, whether it’s ordering a parking decal, renewing a business licence or paying a water bill.
City meetings are being held virtually, with opportunities for delegations to appear through electronic means. City Hall is open for scheduled appointments and a drop-box has been set up for non-cash payments and information. Recreation programs are open for a reduced number of pre-registered participants, and City facilities have reopened with strict health and safety protocols in place.
The City has formed the COVID-19 Recovery Task Force, which includes members of the community, to ensure our social and economic needs are met during these challenging times.
Thank you for doing your part to stop the spread of the coronavirus. We encourage everyone to wash their hands frequently and to stay two metres apart. As Dr. Bonnie Henry says, let’s be kind, be calm and be safe.
