Niagara Region is considering making face masks mandatory amid worries about COVID-19.
Regional officials are holding a meeting on Wednesday to discuss.
If a motion in favour passes, masks will become mandatory in indoor locations where physical distancing is not possible.
“We have a number of people who come from the GTA (Greater Toronto Area) to visit, particularly for tourism purposes,” Niagara Regional Chair Jim Bradley told CHCH News.
“The opportunity to see spread come from the GTA may be greater because of that so that is one of the reasons it becomes compelling by in the minds of many people to have a compulsory rule of masks.”
Bradley says he understands that it will be tough to enforce the rule but believes that when there is a law passed, most people will follow it.
Jason Gaidola has the details.
