The Town of Taber has enacted a Temporary Mandatory Face Coverings bylaw, as the M.D. of Taber has seen rising cases COVID-19.
The bylaw requires the use of facial coverings for all individuals over 10 years of age in all indoor, enclosed, substantially enclosed public places, or in a public vehicle.
The bylaw allows for enforcement for violations with a $100 fine. The Town says the intention is not to be punitive, but those who refuse to comply with the mandatory measures can be subject to a fine.
The Town reminds citizens that regardless of views on masking, being kind is encouraged at all times and asks the public to be courteous and non-judgmental to business owners, workers and anyone encountered in public, regardless of individual viewpoint.
As of Monday, the M.D. of Taber was showing 100 active cases and a total of 4 COVID-19-related deaths since the start of the pandemic.
