SCRD Enacts Emergency Response

2020-03-20 SCRD COVID Bulletin #1

While Vancouver Coastal Health is the local lead agency on the COVID-19 epidemic, on March 16 the SCRD activated our regional Emergency Operations Centre (EOC). Emergency Program personnel are monitoring the situation and will follow guidelines from the federal and provincial governments, as well as Vancouver Coastal Health, and the BC Centre for Disease Control.

SCRD meetings are now being held remotely. Directors are using Zoom conferencing, and the public can see our meetings streamed on our YouTube channel.

All upcoming advisory committee meetings have been cancelled, including Agriculture, Natural Resources and the Area E Advisory Planning Commission. The province is working on new procedures for public hearings.
