Order Under Section 22 of Health Protection and Promotion Act

Mono, ON (June 10, 2020)

Dr. Nicola Mercer, Medical Officer of Health for the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Health Unit, has issued an order regarding the wearing of face masks. Effective as of 12:01 a.m. on Friday June 12th, anyone entering a commercial establishment within the jurisdiction of the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Health Unit is required to wear an appropriate face covering to help limit the spread of COVID-19.

Where wearing a face covering would inhibit a person’s ability to breathe and children under the age of two are exempt.  Anyone who for any medical reason cannot wear a face covering is also exempt.  

The order applies to customers, patrons, employees, or visitors, who enter a commercial establishment. The face covering must be worn inside the establishment at all times, unless it is reasonably required to temporarily remove the face covering for services provided by the establishment (e.g., while eating in a restaurant, while receiving a personal service that requires access to the covered portion of the face, etc.).

“Mono Council fully supports the objective of Dr. Mercer’s order to limit the spread of COVID-19 in our community. The health and wellbeing of our residents is our number one priority and I encourage all residents who can safely do so, to wear a face covering”. — Mayor Laura Ryan

The full order, issued under the authority of Section 22 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act, is available on the Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Health Unit webpage.

Questions regarding the order should be directed to Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Public Health at 519-822-2715, Ext. 4020 Monday to Friday 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Wellington-Dufferin-Guelph Health Unit have provided the following answers to frequently asked questions:

Are face coverings a safe and effective way to prevent COVID-19?

COVID-19 spreads mainly from person-to-person through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks. Droplets can travel up to 2 metres (6 feet) so wearing a face covering that covers your mouth, nose, and chin will help prevent respiratory droplets from reaching others or landing on surfaces.

Wearing a face covering when in public spaces protects others from your respiratory droplets. This is especially important in situations where physical distancing is often difficult or inconsistent such as commercial establishments.

The use of face coverings must be used in combination with good hand hygiene, not touching your face and physical distancing whenever possible.

Who is required to wear a face covering under this order?

Any customer, patron, employee or visitor, who enters the establishment.

I am an employee of a commercial establishment. Am I required to wear a face covering?

Yes, employees are covered under the order.

Who should not wear a face covering?

  • Children under the age of two years.
  • People whose ability to breathe in any way is inhibited by the face covering.
  • People that have any other medical reason they cannot wear a face covering safely.

Where am I required to wear a face covering?

A face covering is required when entering and while on the premises of any commercial establishment in the WDG region. The face covering must be worn inside the establishment at all times, unless it is reasonably required to temporarily remove the face covering for services provided by the establishment. (E.g., while eating in a restaurant, while receiving a personal service that requires access to the covered portion of the face, etc.)

What does a commercial establishment mean?

This means a commercial premise used for the purposes of offering goods or services to members of the public and includes a mall or other structure containing a number of commercial premises. Examples would include retail stores, salons, barber shops and restaurants.

Are patios of restaurants included in the order?

Patios are not included in the order so a face covering is not required on a patio.

What type of face coverings should be worn?

Face coverings do not have to be fancy or expensive but must cover the mouth, nose and chin and provide a barrier that limits the transmission of infectious respiratory droplets and can include:

  • a medical mask,
  • a non-medical mask (cloth, homemade etc.),
  • or other face coverings such as a bandanna, a scarf or cloth.

Should people wear medical masks as face coverings?

While medical masks count as face coverings in this order, Public Health recommends that they be saved for health care workers and that members of the public wear non-medical face coverings.

Will face covering requirements be enforced?

It is the responsibility of the owner or operator to ensure people do not enter without a face covering. We have similar rules for other societal norms such as shirts, shoes and cigarettes.

Do I still need to stay at least 2 metre (6 feet) away from people if wearing a face covering?

Yes that is ideal and should be practiced whenever possible. Wearing a face covering is an important additional measure when physical distancing is not possible.

Can I remove my face covering if physical distancing is not a concern in the establishment I am visiting?

The face covering must be worn inside the establishment at all times, unless it is reasonably required to temporarily remove the face covering for services provided by the establishment. (E.g., while eating in a restaurant, while receiving a personal service that requires access to the covered portion of the face, etc.)

How often should I wash a cloth or non-medical face covering?

The CDC recommends washing face coverings after each use. You can wash it with you regular laundry on the warmest water suitable for the material, and dry on the highest heat setting or air dry, including putting it in direct sunlight if possible.

What is the proper way to safely put on and remove a face covering?

Putting on a face covering:

  • Wash your hands (or use hand sanitizer) before putting on your face covering.
  • Fit it over your nose, mouth and chin.
  • Fit as close to the sides of your face as possible, making sure you can breathe easily.

Removing a face covering:

  • Touching only the ties or loops, remove the face covering without touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Fold the outside corners together.
  • Place the face covering in the washing machine.
  • Wash your hands (or use hand sanitizer) after removing.

How long will the order be in effect?

The order is in effect from 12:01 a.m. on June 12, 2020 until rescinded by the Medical Officer of Health.
