Order of the Health Officer to Require Members of the Public to Wear Facial Coverings

Who is exempt from wearing facial coverings?

Why is this order in place?

  • Facial coverings are meant to protect the public from the user in case the user is infected and not yet displaying symptoms

  • Facial coverings are not a substitute for social distancing.
