Masks Mandatory in All City Facilities Effective Wednesday, August 25, 2021

Effective tomorrow, Wednesday, August 25: Per the Provincial Health Order, masks are once again mandatory in all City facilities. This is not a City mandate. City officials are required to follow the BC Provincial Health Order.

The mask order does not apply to:

  • Those with health conditions or with physical, cognitive or mental impairments who cannot wear one
  • People who cannot remove a mask on their own
  • Children under the age of 12
  • People who need to remove their masks to communicate due to another person’s hearing impairment

Regarding yesterday’s announcement about proof of vaccine, we are reviewing current programming and facilities, and will provide an update when available.

We ask for everyone’s patience as these changes are implemented; we recognize not everyone may agree with these health orders, but it is the responsibility of the City to follow them.
