Statement on Proposed Mandatory Mask Bylaw

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic we have relied on the best advice from our public health experts, including Toronto’s Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Eileen de Villa, to keep us safe.

We must keep listening to our public health experts as we transition our response into the recovery stage, and as our new information about this virus continues to emerge. That's why I am urging City Council to adopt Dr. de Villa's recommendations and introduce a new city bylaw requiring masks or face coverings in enclosed public spaces in order to further protect the public and limit the spread of COVID-19.
