Mask Requirement

As per orders of the Public Health Officer, masks are currently required for people 12 and older in indoor public settings, including all City buildings, regardless of vaccination status. Masks are required in common areas of sports and fitness centres when not engaged in physical activity. Exceptions include people with an underlying medical condition or disability which inhibits their ability to wear a face covering. Learn more
