​The COVID-19 Dashboard provides up-to-date information on the impacts of COVID-19 on Metro Vancouver services. Significant areas of impact include decreased air pollution and increased visitation to regional parks. Our core utility services of Water and Liquid Waste are experiencing consistent levels of demand to previous years, while Solid Waste has experienced a slight decrease in demand.
