FACE COVERINGS AND MASKS BY-LAW
Wearing a mask or face covering is required in enclosed public spaces beginning July 20, 2020 under City of Hamilton By-Law 20-155. The mask or face covering should cover your nose, mouth and chin, without gapping. Wearing a mask or face covering is an additional measure we can take to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 and keep each other safe. This means that, with some exceptions, all persons, including customers and/or visitors entering an enclosed premise are required to wear a mask or face covering while in the enclosed space.
Wearing a mask is not an alternative to physical distancing. Every effort should be made to keep a 2-metre distance even when wearing a mask.
What is a face covering or mask?
"Face Covering" means a medical or non-medical mask or other face covering such as a balaclava, bandana, scarf, cloth, or other similar item that covers the nose, mouth, and chin without gapping.
Requirements for anyone entering the inside of the restaurant:
- Anyone entering the restaurant must wear a face covering while inside the restaurant
- A person's face covering must cover the nose, mouth, and chin without gapping. If a person is a parent, guardian, or person accompanying a child, they must ensure that any child two years age or older wears a face covering
- Temporary removal of face coverings is permitted only for the purpose of eating or drinking
- Ensure you wash your hands using soap and water or an alcohol-based hand sanitizer before and after removing your face covering or mask
People who are exempt from wearing a mask or face covering:
The following persons are exempt from the requirement to wear a Mask or Face Covering. They are not required to provide proof of such exemption:
- A child under the age of two
- A child at least 2 years in age but under the age of 5 years who refuses to wear a face covering and cannot be persuaded to do so by their caregiver
- A person who has an underlying medical condition which inhibits their ability to wear a face covering
- A person who is unable to place or remove a face covering without assistance
- A person who is an employee or agent of the operator and is within an area designated for them and not for public access, or is within or behind a physical barrier
- A person who is reasonably accommodated by not wearing a face covering in accordance with the Human Rights Code including a person with a disability that makes it difficult to wear or communicate while wearing a face covering
- A person who removes the mask for the period necessary to eat or drink
- A person who is engaged in a public speaking or performing that is at least 2 meters from guests and behind a protective barrier
No member of the public will be denied entry if they are unable to wear a mask or face covering due to a listed exemption. We ask for patience and kindness as everyone adjusts and navigates through these uncertain times.
How will this by-law be enforced?
We are required to take reasonable steps to comply with the By-law including posting visible signage at all entrances and ensuring that anyone entering or remaining in the restaurant wears a face covering that covers their noise, mouth and chin without gapping.
Every person entering an establishment must actively comply with the By-law and signage posted requiring them to wear a face covering unless exempt and ensure any child of at least 2 years of age under their care wears a face covering unless they indicate the child is exempt.
A fine may be issued under this By-law. Every person who contravenes this by-law may be issued a penalty notice under the Administrative Penalty System (APS), the maximum fine is $500. A repeat offender could be issued a Part 3 charge under the Provincial Offences Act (POA) for a contravention of this By-law.
