Face Mask Mandate

The Grey-Bruce Public Health Board has issued an Order requiring face masks to be worn in all commercial establishments commencing July 17, 2020 – the same date designated by the Province of Ontario for Stage 3 re-opening in the area of the Grey Bruce Health Unit. This order may be rescinded, amended or extended by further Order. To view the entire MOH Class Order click here.
