温哥华——市长肯尼迪·斯图尔特星期三宣布,温哥华市应该宣布进入紧急状态。

在周三的新闻发布会上,他对媒体说:“我很担心。所以我建议在这里宣布紧急状态。”

市长说他将在第二天把他的建议提交议会表决。他预计紧急状态将在周四得到批准。

其中,他说他接到警方的消息说,尽管BC省当天下午发布了公共卫生紧急情况,但几家餐馆星期二仍然营业。

“这不能再继续下去了,”他说。

实施紧急状态将在某些情况下赋予该市更多的权力,包括迫使无视政府官员建议的餐馆关闭。

他说,如果这项声明继续下去,或许还能解决恐慌性购买的问题。

要求所有居民立即限制在公共场所的时间。

餐馆被要求关闭,除非他们能提供外卖和送货服务。

斯图尔特说,在温哥华市中心东区增设了更多的洗手站,以解决温哥华无家可归者支持者表达的担忧。

该市正在为那些需要自我隔离但没有空间这样做的人寻找住房选择。


VANCOUVER -- It is time for the City of Vancouver to declare a state of emergency, Mayor Kennedy Stewart announced Wednesday.

Speaking to media at a news conference Wednesday, he told the media, "I am concerned. That's why I recommend we declare a state of emergency here."

The mayor said he will take his suggestion to council the following day for a vote. He expects the state of emergency will be approved on Thursday.

Among the reasons, he said he received word from police that several restaurants remained open Tuesday despite a public health emergency issued by the province that afternoon.

"This can't go on," he said.

Implementing a state of emergency would give the city more authority in certain situations, including to force restaurants defying the advice of public officials to close.

He said the city may also be able to address the issue of panic buying if the declaration goes forward.

All residents are asked to immediately limit the time they spend in public places.

Restaurants have been told to close down, unless they're able to offer takeout and delivery services.

Addressing concerns voiced by advocates of the city's homeless population, Stewart said more hand-washing stations have been added in Vancouver's Downtown Eastside.

The city is looking into housing options for anyone who needs to self-isolate but doesn't have the space to do so.

This is a developing news story and will be updated. Original article follows.

The City of Vancouver is expected to address concerns regarding the spread of the novel coronavirus known as COVID-19 on Wednesday.

In an advisory, the city said it would be updating the public on what its organizations are doing to minimize the impact on residents.

During the afternoon news conference, the city will also discuss its operations.
