Wearing face masks in White Rock during the COVID-19 pandemic
The Province of B.C. requires people to wear masks in indoor public spaces.
The COVID-19 Recovery Task Force, formed to respond to the social and economic needs of the city during the COVID-19 pandemic, suggested that White Rock’s residents and visitors should consider wearing masks outdoors when people can’t stay two metres apart.
Wearing a mask can help protect others by containing a person’s droplets when they are talking, laughing, singing, coughing or sneezing. Wearing a cloth mask is mandatory at shopping malls, grocery stores, community centres, on transit and other public indoor spaces.
Any mask should be used along with other preventive measures, such as frequent hand washing and physical distancing. Please be kind to others and respectful of those who cannot wear masks.
