On July 6, 2020, local health units announced 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 will come into effect July 7, at 12:01am. This is an added measure to the existing public health measures in place, to reduce the spread of COVID-19. We kindly ask that you read our recent media release for a better understanding.
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. When you do need to go out in public, take a cloth face covering/mask with you so you can put it on when you are potentially in close contact with other people.
We all need to work together to help stop others from becoming sick.
