On July 9, 2020,
Town Council passed temporary By-Law No. 2020-0037, requiring the wearing of a mask/face covering in enclosed public places during the COVID-19 pandemic, effective Thursday, July 16, 2020
Masks/face coverings should ensure the nose, mouth and chin are securely covered so as to filter respiratory droplets. Masks can be cloth, medical and/ or disposable. Other forms of acceptable face coverings include bandanas and scarves. A face shield is not a substitute for wearing a face mask as it does not filter respiratory droplets.
Residents are reminded that the wearing of a mask or face covering is to be done alongside other public health protocols to ensure optimal effectiveness. This includes washing your hands frequently, practicing physical distancing where possible and staying home if ill.
