Ottawa Public Health mandated the use of masks in many indoor public spaces effective July 7, 2020. The City of Ottawa then passed a Temporary Mandatory Mask By-law which came into effect July 15, 2020. If your business is looking for some information on how to comply with the new by-law, this is a one-stop resource from Ottawa Public Health that answers many questions including:

  • FAQs about the mandatory mask directive
  • Current evidence on community mask wearing
  • Information posters to use in the workplace
  • Mask use FAQ’s
  • Other provincial and federal resources on face coverings

More information is also available on a special Business and Workplace page that addresses FAQ’s, guidance documents for specific business settings and preventing COVID-19 in the workplace.
