Niagara’s mandatory mask policy will be extended until April 1, 2021 after a vote last night by Niagara Region council.  The final vote was 25 for and 5 against.


The bylaw which first came into effect on July 31 can be repealed sooner if councillors decide to do so.

Council says the vast majority of residents and businesses have followed the rules.

The bylaw requires people to wear a mask or face covering in enclosed public places.

It does not apply to outdoor locations or to indoor locations accessible only to staff and includes a number of exemptions.

It was set to expire on Oct. 1.  For updated information on the bylaw in the region, please visit the website HERE.
