To reduce the spread of COVID-19 and to build on the progress that we have made thus far, the City of Mississauga has enacted a by-law that makes the wearing of a face covering mandatory in all indoor locations that are accessible to the public.
In this online webinar we are joined by Samuel Rogers, Director of Enforcement at the City of Mississauga, and Louise Aubin, Director of Health Protection with Peel Public Health to provide:
- Guidance to businesses on the City’s by-law requirement of wearing face coverings in indoor public spaces
- General guidance on mask usage
