Dear Uptown Area businesses, services and organizations:
The Uptown Business Association of New Westminster (UBA) shares your concerns about the current COVID-19 situation.  We understand that you may be grappling with difficult choices on staffing, service, safety and viability.

We encourage you to have contingency plans in place and to take all necessary precautions as the situation develops.  As a BIA we are fortunate to have no imminent scheduled events to consider.  As members, however, you may.

For more information on preparing your business, here is a helpful guide from the Canadian Chamber of Commerce.

Please also find more general health information from HealthLink BC

The City of New Westminster is guided by the local, provincial and federal health authorities on matters related to public health and as such is providing information as up to date as possible.
It is important to note that at this time, there are no interruptions to City programs, services and events. Plans are being developed to address program and event cancellations should public health authorities direct them to do so.

Please continue to support your neighbourhood small businesses and services during trying times as, they can be the most effected.  We remain stronger as a community.
