Northern Health temporarily suspends pay parking

Information Bulletin

In an effort to reduce the risk of COVID-19 transmission, Northern Health is temporarily suspending pay parking for the public, staff and medical staff, at the University Hospital of Northern BC effective April 1st, and until further notice.

Pay parking machines require people to touch screens and buttons that may have been touched by someone previously. Discontinuing the use of pay parking machines reduces the risk of potential spread of infection and also supports physical distancing measures that have been mandated by the Provincial Health Officer.

Northern Health is working with Impark, which is the parking services provider at the health authority’s only public pay-parking site in the region, to implement this change immediately.

Northern Health reminds everyone about the importance of physical distancing, which means limiting close contact from others by staying 2 metres away from others outside our homes, frequent handwashing, using virtual options to connect with others, limiting shopping to only essential outings, avoiding large gatherings, and staying home if you are sick.
