Masks

Masks are mandatory in Caledon as of July 10.

As a business, here's what you need to do:

  1. Read the by-law.
  2. By July 15, 2020, develop a policy (use our template).
  3. Post signage at all entrances (use our template).
  4. Train your employees. 
    • Customers or visitors must wear a face covering before they enter your business AND and while they’re inside.
    • Employees must wear a face covering EXCEPT in areas where the public does not have access or where the employees are behind a barrier.
    • Children under two, people who have trouble breathing, and people who are unable to remove a mask without assistance are exempt.
    • Anyone who claims that they are exempt is NOT required to provide a reason or any proof.
    • If in doubt, be sure to consult the by-law or contact us.
  5. Make sure no one enters your establishment without a face covering.
  6. Keep a copy of your policy handy in case one of our by-law officers asks for it.    

Please note: If a customer or visitor does not wear a face covering you can ask them to put one on or leave.
