Mandatory Masks FAQs for Businesses

Beginning Friday, July 24, 2020 at 12:01 AM, it is mandatory that people in the general public wear a mask or other form of face covering in indoor public spaces.

Many questions have been posed and we have provided this Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) page to help Employers, Business Owners and Operators implement a mandatory masking policy in their business or organization. An FAQ page for the general public will be added in the coming days.

This page and its content will continue to evolve as we receive more questions and information. Please continue to refer to the website for up to date and accurate information.

Please note that there are reasons where someone may not be able to wear mask/face covering and who do not need to follow the mandatory mask directive for business ( ) and for that reason these individuals are exempt. The reason may not be visible to others and individuals are not expected to share their reasons.

A full list of the exemptions are outlined in the instruction letter from Dr. DeMille, the Medical Officer of Health.  This exemption list includes children under 2 years of age as they should not wear masks.
