Taber enacts mask bylaw

By Herald on December 1, 2020.

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.

Good job. These local counties and MD’s have a much higher covid rate then here in the City. No one cares much.. until these folks might possibly take up all of the hospital and ICU beds!

Would love your thoughts, please comment.x
