Face coverings will be required in all indoor public spaces in Chatham-Kent on Friday, August 14.
On August 10th, Chatham-Kent Council voted in favour of having a Mandatory Mask By-Law. This by-law requires that face coverings (that securely cover the nose, mouth and chin) be worn in all indoor public spaces.
Wearing a mask is only one aspect of reducing the spread of COVID-19. Please continue to abide by the following public health measures:
- Maintain physical distancing of two metres at all times
- Wash your hands with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with 70% alcohol frequently
- Stay home (not going into the community or to work) if you’re not feeling well, and get tested for COVID-19.
For any concerns regarding the by-law, please contact COVID-19 Enforcement or phone 519.360.1998. In addition, please check out the Municipality’s Mask By-law FAQ page!
