OFFICAL RELEASE: FACE COVERING NOVEMBER, 2020
- From the Office of the Mayor.
Town of Tofield
The Town of Tofield, through Emergency Meeting of Council has enacted Bylaw 1323, being a Mandatory Facial Covering Bylaw. This Bylaw is effective November 23, 2020.
Once active, this Bylaw will require the use of facial coverings for all individuals over the age of 2 in all indoor, or substantially enclosed Public Place(s) or in Public Transportation vehicles. Exemptions shall include:
- Persons under 2 years of age;
- Persons who are unable to place, use, or remove coverings without assistance;
- Persons with medical exemptions;
- Persons providing care or assistance to a person with a disability where a Face Covering would hinder that caregiving or assistance;
- Persons consuming food or drink in designated seating areas or as part of a religious or spiritual ceremony;
- Persons engaging in aquatic activities or physical exercise; or
- Persons engaging in services that require the temporary removal of Face Coverings
Mayor and Council have enacted this bylaw due to rising provincial, regional, and local COVID-19 case numbers. This bylaw also accommodates the Provincial request to help reduce risk in our communities to prevent overloading the health care system, and, to avoid further provincial imposed restrictions.
It should be noted that face coverings are only effective if used in combination with other health measures, such as regular hand washing, physical distancing, and reducing large gatherings.
While the intention of this bylaw is not punitive, those who do not, or refuse to comply with the bylaw, without medical exemption could be subject to a $50.00 fine.
Mayor and Council recognize that face coverings are a polarizing issue, however, we ask that all individuals in our community be treated with kindness, respect and consideration, in what we have known to be the spirit of Tofield, both in person and online.
