Masks and Face Coverings
Masks and face coverings are now mandatory for all enclosed indoor public spaces and public transit (bus, taxi, ride share, etc.) across London and Middlesex County.
This means that all members of the public, employees, volunteers, contractors, and agents of a business or organization must wear a face covering for the entire time they are in the enclosed public space or vehicle. In certain scenarios, the face covering may be temporarily removed. Certain people are exempt from wearing a face covering.
This includes our boat bays at the club
What type of face covering is required?
The following face coverings are permitted:
- medical or non-medical mask
- bandana, made of cloth, linen or other similar fabric
- scarf, made of cloth, linen or other similar fabric
The face covering must fit securely to the head and be large enough to completely and comfortably cover the mouth, nose and chin without gapping.
NOTE: Face shields do not replace face coverings. Face shields may provide an additional layer of protection, but they should not be used in place of face coverings.
Who is exempt?
The following individuals are exempt from wearing a mask or face covering:
- Children under the age of 12;
- People who have a medical condition or disability which inhibits their ability to wear a face covering;
- Those unable to apply or remove a face covering without assistance;
- People with accommodations under the Ontario Human Rights Code or the Accessibility for Ontarians with a Disabilities Act (AODA);
- Staff or agents of the operator of an enclosed public space who are in an area of the premises that is designated for them and not accessible to the public, or in an area separated by a physical barrier, such as plexiglass [applies to the Instruction only].
NOTE: There is no requirement for anyone to provide proof of exemption.
