Niagara's Face-Covering By-law amended to include common areas of apartments and condominiums

Posted by Niagara Region on Monday, October 26th, 2020

 

As part of its continued response to the second wave of the COVID-19 pandemic, Regional Council passed a by-law to amend Niagara’s temporary Face-Covering By-law to include common areas of residential apartment buildings and condominium buildings, including lobbies, elevators and other common-use facilities.

Niagara’s temporary Face-Covering By-law (2020-46) requires residents to wear face-coverings in all enclosed public places and on Regional and municipal transit. On Sept. 17, the by-law was extended to remain in effect until April 1, 2021 in recognition of the ongoing threat posed by the pandemic.

Residents and businesses are reminded that the by-law includes a number of exemptions. Not everyone can wear a mask and many disabilities are invisible. There's no requirement for people to prove they are exempt.

COVID-19 questions? More details about the Face-Covering By-law, including frequently-asked questions, and resources for business owners, are available on Niagara Region’s website. Residents can also call Niagara Region Public Health's COVID-19 Info Line at 905-688-8248 or 1-888-505-6074, and press 7.​​​
