Businesses Ask For Mandatory Masks

Eastern Ontario health units agree to policy effective July 7

Businesses in Eastern Ontario have asked health units to mandate the wearing of face coverings and health units have agreed. Communities in Eastern Ontario including the City of Ottawa have combined to enforce a mandatory mask-wearing policy for the entire region. In a press conference on July 6, four medical officers of health joined to deliver the same message: face coverings must be worn in every indoor, publicly-accessible place. There is no end date to the directive but the earliest it would be considered by any of the medical officers of health was the end of September. Download our latest issue.

There will be people who disagree with that decision (I among them) but while this directive is in place, as businesses and organizations, we need to adapt to it. So how do we invite people to interact with us when our ability to personally connect seems to be further and further away? Download our latest issue.
