Updates on Coronavirus (COVID-19)

The City of Coquitlam continues to provide most civic services and take steps to protect the public and help limit the spread of COVID-19.

The City of Coquitlam is closely monitoring the situation in British Columbia and locally. Please watch this page for updates to City services as the pandemic continues, and see the links at the bottom of the page for COVID-19 information from other government and health authorities.

We're all in this together; let's stay apart.

City Service Updates

Please note that the City of Coquitlam, consistent with the Provincial Health Officer (PHO) recommendations, expects that all people entering City facilities wear a mask. 

City facilities are common, public and high-traffic areas. Wherever possible, it is expected that visitors will wear a mask. For those participating in classes or lessons, please follow the guidelines provided to you by staff, which will include direction to wear a mask while passing through common areas or where there is not sufficient space for physical distancing. 

At this time, most City services continue to be delivered with protocols in place to ensure both public and staff safety. For service details, see the links to the left. Staff are also available by phone or email; visit coquitlam.ca/contact. Also, many City services and transactions can be completed online; visit coquitlam.ca/eservices.
