COVID-19: Mandatory Masks

COVID-19: Mandatory Masks

Posted on July 6, 2020

The face-mask has become the defining symbol of the Covid 19 pandemic. While it is one of the keys in keeping you safe, should wearing one be mandatory in public places?

Ontario Premier Doug Ford says he has no problem with municipalities making it mandatory, but he cannot see how it could be enforced. Toronto City Council has voted for it, and other GTA areas such as Peel and York Regions will be considering it this week. Ottawas Mayor, Jim Watson says he would support it if the Medical Officer of Health is in agreement. The onus is on the customer or visitor when it comes to a mask – but businesses will not be required to provide them as it would be another financial burden.
