Officials in the city of Camrose, Alta., have instituted a mandatory face-covering bylaw.
The bylaw went into effect on Nov. 2 and applies to people over the age of 10 in public spaces and civic facilities.
Some exemptions are in place, including for those who are unable to wear a mask due to a medical condition.
The bylaw allows for the removal of masks during physical activities, while consuming food and drinks or while taking part in religious or spiritual ceremonies.
In the post, officials stressed that face coverings “are only effective in combination with other preventative health measures such as regular hand washing, social distancing, and reducing large gatherings.”
