March 13: Update on City's Response to Global Impacts of Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The situation regarding the impact of COVID-19 continues to evolve. The City of Nanaimo is actively monitoring and responding to the direction and recommendations being made by the Government of Canada and the BC provincial health officer.

As a result of the recommendations made by the BC provincial health officer, we are currently reviewing all events and programs. Spring Break Camps and recreational classes run by the City will continue as the number of participants are less than 250. This also means that arenas and swimming pools will be limited to a capacity of 250 at any one time. However, all gatherings with 250 or more people will be cancelled or postponed, as per the provincial health officer’s direction.

If you have not done so already, I encourage you to visit the informational page on the City’s website called “City’s Response to COVID-19” which has important resources and information from various authorities, including updates on the steps the City is taking to address the impact COVID-19 is having globally, nationally, locally.
