These recommendations help Musqueam and public health authorities to contact trace and prevent potential spread of the virus, and are aligned with BC’s province-wide COVID-19 restrictions.

Residents are recommended to:
As a community, if we recommit to following these recommendations and the provincial health guidelines, we can continue to protect and take care of each other until our community can be vaccinated.
