Mandatory Face Coverings

At the Special Council Meeting on Thursday, July 16, Town Council approved By-law 5248-20, to provide temporary regulations to require the wearing of face masks, face coverings, or face shields in enclosed public spaces in the Town of Niagara-on-the-Lake. These temporary regulations are consistent with the recommendations of health authorities at the Federal, Provincial, and Regional levels, which advise people to wear masks, face shields, or face coverings in public whenever physical distancing is a challenge.

This By-law came into effect on Thursday, July 23, 2020, and will remain in effect until Niagara-on-the-Lake’s State of Emergency is lifted, or until it is repealed by Council. Click here to read the full media release.

Please note: the wearing of face masks, face shields or face coverings is also strongly encouraged in outdoor spaces anytime physical distancing is a challenge.
