Mandatory Use of Face Masks in all City Facilities
Whitehorse – Effective immediately, wearing a face mask is mandatory in all City of Whitehorse facilities.
Members of the public will be required to wear a face mask for the duration of their visit to any City facility, including:
The Canada Games Centre, Takhini Arena, City Hall, Public Safety Building, Municipal Services Building, the Grey Mountain Room at Mount McIntyre Recreation Centre, the Parks service counter at the Frank Slim Building and Whitehorse Operations Building.
The decision aligns with the announcement earlier this week from the Chief Medical Officer of Health, who made masks mandatory in all indoor public spaces beginning on December 1st.
As announced last week, masks are also mandatory on board Whitehorse Transit vehicles.
Additional information on how to wear, use, and store your mask is available here.
