BY The Canadian Press, Jun 30, 2020 3:45 PM - REPORT AN ERRORLAST UPDATED ON Jun 30, 2020 10:45 PM

Starting July 7th, face coverings will be mandatory in all public indoor settings in Toronto.

City council approved the temporary bylaw this afternoon on the recommendation of the city's medical officer of health to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Doctor Eileen de Villa will review the need for the bylaw on a monthly basis.

Mayor John Tory says the temporary bylaw does not affect social gatherings but will apply to public spaces including stores and other businesses.

Face coverings made mandatory on all public transit across Quebec

Starting July 13th, face coverings will be mandatory on all public transit across Quebec.

Premier Francois Legault says there will be a two-week probationary period, but after that, anyone aged 12 and older not wearing a mask will be denied access.

He says it's the right time to introduce the measure as the province moves into another phase amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

Legault didn't rule out additional measures making masks mandatory in other areas.
