Emergency Operations Centre Responds to Increased COVID-19 Cases


In response to the growing number of COVID-19 cases in our region, the City of Williams Lake has increased its Emergency Operations Centre response to a Level 2.


This allows the City to better coordinate with Interior Health and other communities and organizations to help support all residents and provide up to date information.


We continue to press for timely, specific information from Interior Health to enable us to be proactive and do our part to help stop the spread of the virus. City of Williams Lake Council continues to advocate for effective communication and Williams Lake-specific information.


The City is working hard to help ensure that everyone stays healthy and safe, and will be providing regular updates and sharing all information as it is made available.


We remind everyone to remain vigilant in following COVID-19 precautions:


  • Keep to your household bubbles and avoid social gatherings
  • Avoid non-essential travel
  • Practice physical distancing 
  • Wear a mask 
  • Wash your hands and sanitize often
  • Stay home when you are sick and get tested if you have any symptoms consistent with COVID‑19
  • To book a COVID-19 test online or by phone, call the COVID-19 Test Booking Line at 1-877-740-7747


Interior Health has frequently updated COVID-19 information on their public website
