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

Concerned about exposure to COVID-19 or symptoms you are experiencing?

There's an app for that!

Complete the B.C. Ministry of Health Self-Assessment Tool for assessment and direction, or download the App to access the self-assessment tool, resources, statistics and more. This tool has been created to redirect the need for everyone to call 8.1.1., as this phone system has been challenged by the volume of calls.  

 


Watch: Mayor Karen Elliott checks in with Squamish residents today on the importance of physical distancing and clarifying local enforcement abilities (March 27, 2020).

 

Current Health Authority recommendations:

  • Stay home as much as possible.
  • Stay home if you are experiencing any symptoms of illness.
  • Get serious about social distancing - maintain a two-metre or six-feet distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
  • Wash your hands. A lot. 
  • Be sure to sneeze or cough into your arm. 
  • Forgo usual greetings (e.g. handshakes or hugs). 
  • If abroad, now is the time to return home.
  • Anyone returning from travel outside of Canada must self-isolate for 14 days upon their return.
  • Cancel gatherings with greater than 50 people.
If you have symptoms and may have been exposed to COVID-19, complete the online assessment tool.
