St. Catharines council moves forward on creating mandatory mask by-law
St. Catharines Council has voted in favour of moving forward on a mandatory mask by-law.
A special meeting was held this afternoon and councillors voted in favour of staff proceeding with the creation of a mandatory mask by-law, which will be finalized next week by council.
The draft by-law would require people to wear masks or face coverings, if they are able to, when in public spaces indoors.
Children under 2 and residents who can't wear masks for medical reasons would be exempt.
The by-law will go before council next Monday for final approval.
On Wednesday, a special meeting of Niagara Regional Council will conduct a similar meeting.
This week, Chrissy Sadowski is joined by Janice Arnoldi of Janice and Robin Digital Communications, Host of Life Unscripted on CKTB. They discuss the mental health of kids (and moms) during COVID-19.
