  • A person must wear a facemask at all times while attending an indoor public place.
  • For greater certainty, an indoor public place means all indoor spaces under the control of a business or entity, including all areas where the public or employees of the business or entity may attend.
  • For greater certainty, except as otherwise set out in this Order, masks must be worn by 
    • Persons attending at businesses or entities and workplaces.
    • A person driving or being transported in a commercial vehicle on a highway with one or more additional persons must wear a facemask at all times.
    • A person must comply with all masking directives or guidance while attending at a facility operated by a regional health authority under the Regional Health Authorities Act or a facility operated by a contracted service provider of a regional health authority.
