City of Edmonton could make masks mandatory in all public spaces

The meeting will happen on Wednesday

The City of Edmonton will continue their mask meetings later this week.

The main topic of discussion will be about if people will need to wear face masks in all public spaces.

On Monday, council members will get the first draft of a bylaw mandating masks in all public spaces, retail stores, entertainment venues, rec centres, and more

Masks wouldn't be necessary in Edmonton schools or childcare facilities, hospitals and health care centres or work spaces where staff are separated from patrons

People exercising, doing water activities, or dining in a designated space or religious ceremony wouldn't need to wear a mask.

Rule violators could see a $100 fine
