To protect the health of residents and staff, the District of North Vancouver in partnership with the City of North Vancouver and North Vancouver Recreation and Culture Commission (NVRC) and at the recommendation of Vancouver Coastal Health, has announced that all NVRC-operated facilities will close at the end of operating hours today in an effort to flatten the curve and slow the rate of infection.

The District continues to be involved in planning and information-sharing related to COVID-19 with North Shore Emergency Management (NSEM) and our health care partners on the outbreak at a care home in Lynn Valley. We are also taking steps to protect our employees and the community.

Earlier today, the District was notified of the tragic news of the Lynn Valley care home resident who passed away from COVID-19. Our thoughts are with the family and loved ones during this sad time, and we send them our condolences.

The District was made aware of the outbreak at a care home in Lynn Valley this morning, where two residents and one caregiver have tested positive for COVID-19. The District is being guided by local, provincial, and federal health authorities who are working hard to contain this outbreak. 

We are building a new full-size artificial turf field (ATF) in Inter River Park that will meet tournament standards, and increase the sports field availability in the park.
