COVID-19: Mandatory Masks

As of Tuesday, July 7, 2020, masks are mandatory in all public and enclosed indoor spaces. 

According to the City of Toronto, businesses must adhere to the following guidelines: 

  • You must create a mask policy for your establishment.
  • You must communicate this new policy to staff and customers.
  • You must train your staff on the policy and who is exempt.
  • All staff, customers or visitors must wear a mask indoors, with some exceptions (e.g. children under the age of two and people with certain health conditions, employees in designated areas or protected by a physical barrier).
  • Proof is not required if someone has an exemption.
  • Signs must be posted at all entrances reminding everyone to wear a mask.

The City of Toronto has put together a graphic outlining where masks must be worn:
