Keeping Pedestrians Safe

We’re making changes across the City to help provide a more comfortable experience for pedestrians and to support the current physical distance requirements. 

Here’s what we’re doing:

  • automating many of our pedestrian signals so you don’t need to touch the button to cross the street. You’ll notice signs at key locations alerting pedestrians to this change. 
  • connecting with local businesses, such as grocery stores and banks, to help them manage lineups outside of their business. This will help us maintain an appropriate physical distance between those waiting in line and pedestrians passing by.
  • monitoring our greenways, high volume pedestrian areas and key intersections and installing additional signage where necessary to remind pedestrians to respect physical distancing requirements.

 

The City is closely monitoring the COVID-19/Coronavirus situation, and as always, the health and safety of our community and staff is a priority. We are working with our agencies, partners, neighbouring communities and health authorities regarding handling of the impacts of COVID-19.

Municipalities are guided by local, provincial and federal health authorities on health matters. At this time, Vancouver Coastal Health and the BC Centre for Disease Control advises the risk of transmission in the region remains low, yet active measures are required to address the spread of the virus. The City will adjust its response to COVID-19 based on advice and direction from public health officials and the provincial health authorities.

Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this challenging time.

Message from Mayor Linda Buchanan

These are stressful and unprecedented times, and we are taking the necessary and important steps to help contain the spread of the COVID-19 virus. It is up to all of us to reduce transmission. Washing your hands regularly and distancing yourself from others remains the most important steps individuals can take. Closing public facilities, cancelling public events, and following the advice of federal and provincial health authorities is critical for our community. Let’s look after one another, and support those who may be in need of help.
