Ongoing Pandemic Response


In light of recent reports of increased COVID-19 exposures in the region, the City of Williams Lake urges everyone to continue to follow the Provincial Health Order currently in place to limit the spread of the virus. By following these best practices (including staying home if you feel unwell or have symptoms; limiting social interactions to household members only; physical distancing; wearing a mask; diligent sanitizing and hand washing), we can help limit the spread and contribute to a healthy community.


At this time, City facilities remain open, with restrictions in place. City Hall continues normal operations with face covering, physical distancing, and sanitization procedures in place. However, the City requests that individuals consider visiting City Hall only if absolutely necessary, or if requested by a staff member. City Hall has a drop box at the front of the building for payments and correspondence.


The Cariboo Memorial Recreation Complex continues to require masks in all common areas, and spectators are prohibited. The ice rinks, aquatic facility, fitness centre and low-intensity programs continue to operate and are available to patrons. 


As the COVID-19 situation in British Columbia is continually evolving, the City will adapt its response and level of service to meet the requirements of both Interior Health and the Province.  


The City will update its residents as soon as any developments occur. For up-to-date information regarding the local response to the COVID-19 situation, with relevant links to current information, visit
