Masks now mandatory at CrossIron Mills amid COVID-19

CrossIron Mills .

Shoppers visiting CrossIron Mills must now wear masks, which became mandatory at the mall starting on Nov. 1.

CrossIron Mills is located outside of Calgary in Rocky View County so it’s not covered by the City of Calgary’s face coverings bylaw, and at this time Rocky View County has not imposed mandatory mask-wearing.

CrossIron Mills spokesperson Neha Khare said 98 per cent of stores in the mall already had a mandatory mask policy, so the move helps alleviate exposure risk in hallways and common areas.
