Ontario Face-covering rules: what you need to know

Many Ontario municipalities and public health units are issuing by-laws and orders that requires customers and employees to wear a face-covering while in publicly accessible parts of indoor businesses, such as dining rooms, showrooms or waiting areas.

In addition to face-coverings, some jurisdictions are also requiring businesses to have written policies, specific signage and.or hand sanitizer at entrances and exits.

Make sure check carefully to know exactly what your region requires of you to ensure the health and safety of your customers and employees.

Please check back regularly for further developments and newly added regions.
