COVID-19

covid facilities and services update button

The District of Squamish is working to share information and operational updates as we support efforts to slow the transmission of COVID-19 and help keep our community healthy. We follow the recommendations of British Columbia's Ministry of Health and Vancouver Coastal Health. 

Revised  April 9, 2022

Wearing masks in public indoor settings is not required by public health. Wearing a mask is a personal choice. Masks are encouraged on public transit and BC Ferries, but not required.  

Individual businesses and event organizers can choose to continue requiring masks on their premises. It’s important that we respect the choices of people, businesses and one another.

You must wear a mask when travelling by air and other federally regulated travel.

Visit the B.C. Government website for details on current restrictions.
