CBC News ·
Non-medical masks will be mandatory for people in indoor public spaces in Newfoundland and Labrador, starting Aug. 24. The new rule applies to people aged five and older.
The special order means people will have to wear masks in stores, places of worship, while riding public transit, in a theatre or performing arts venue and in common areas in office buildings.
Non-medical face masks help protect against the spread of COVID-19, Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Janice Fitzgerald says in a video on the provincial government’s website Monday, showing kids how to safely put on their masks.
