In Eastern Ontario, we have worked together on a regional approach to mandatory masks. In Leeds, Grenville and Lanark, this Instruction will require premises with indoor public spaces to adopt a policy to ensure facial coverings/masks are worn inside enclosed public spaces. This is an added measure to the existing public health measures in place, to reduce the spread of COVID-19.
We continue to have a low number of new cases, so please continue to practice physical distancing of 2m/6ft, stay home when you are sick, wash your hands, and do regular cleaning of common hard surfaces as well as wearing a face covering/mask in enclosed indoor spaces.
Our website has answers to many of your questions, but if you would like to speak to someone, call 1-800-660-5853 – extension 2222 for COVID-19 questions, extension 2308 for business re-opening questions, extension 2499 for all other inquires. As of August 8, 2020, our weekend phone line hours will change to 8:30am – Noon. Weekdays remains at 8:30am to 4:30pm.
