The provincial response to COVID-19 is evolving. Pay special attention to travel restrictions, climbing area closures, and direction for gathering sizes and physical distancing.

Provincial Travel restrictions
Parks and Rec Site Closures
In addition, there is an access concern about illegal camping:
From the Squamish Access Society website:
District of Squamish provides the following guidance on its website: “Camping is not allowed on District or private property, unless the property is zoned specifically for that purpose. Crown land does not fall under this restriction, however within District of Squamish municipal boundaries, District bylaws do apply to open fires, littering, wildlife attractants, noise, and environmental concerns. District Bylaw Officers can and do attend many unauthorised campsites in order to enforce bylaws.” In correspondence, the District also added that: “Camping on municipal streets or municipal or private parking lots in the District is not permitted under any circumstances.”
From Peter Winter: DO NOT CAMP ALONG THE MAMQUAM FSR BETWEEN THE HIGHWAY AND THE BRIDGE THAT CROSSES STAWAMUS RIVER. THIS MEANS NO VAN CAMPING OR TENTS. THIS AREA IS BC PARKS AND IT IS ILLEGAL FOR YOU TO DO SO. THIS HAS BECOME A VERY SENSITIVE ISSUE. THERE IS FREE CAMPING AT THE CHEK CLIMBING AREA AND NEW, CHEAP CAMPING HERE.
P1. Start up jugs on the right side of the slender buttress. Stem, layback, and face climb past bolts and gear up the buttress to finish at an anchor on the left at a small ledge. Fun and technical climbing with multiple cruxes (.10c, 4 bolts, ~25m).
P2. Follow the small buttress up cracks and face holds to a neat crux stemming or laybacking past two bolts. Can be easily linked with pitch 1 (.10b, 3 bolts, ~20m).
P3. Climb a crack in the wall above the belay. Move right when possible, clip a bolt, and stem higher until it’s possible to make an engaging step right onto the main face. Cruxy slab moves past bolts (easily aided) lead to an anchor (.10c, 6 bolts, ~25m).
P4. A tough move at the first bolt leads to easier slab climbing. At an overlap, step left past a bolt and continue to an anchor on a beautiful ledge (.10a, 6 bolts, ~30m).
Rap the route with a single rope.
