Mandatory Face Coverings

North Bay, ON – July 24, 2020 – The North Bay Parry Sound District Health Unit made it mandatory for residents to wear a face covering in all enclosed publicly-accessible spaces in the district as of July 24.  

This means, with some exceptions, all persons, including customers, visitors and staff, entering an enclosed public premise, including City Hall and other municipal facilities, as well as North Bay Transit buses are required to wear a mask or face covering while inside.

Face coverings should also be worn in other spaces (indoor or outdoor) where physical distancing is challenging or not possible.

Wearing a mask or face covering is not an alternative to safe physical distancing. Every effort should be made to keep a two-metre distance even when wearing a mask. Wearing a face covering should always be combined with other health measures such proper hand washing or sanitizing, not touching your eyes, nose, or mouth with unwashed hands, and staying home if you are sick.
