The Municipality of Kincardine Lifts Masking Requirements for all Facilities Effective March 21, 2022

Posted On Monday March 14, 2022

In alignment with Provincial and public health guidelines, masking requirements will be removed for all Municipality of Kincardine facilities for both visitors and staff, effective March 21, 2022.

On March 9, the Province announced that on March 21 it will remove mandatory mask requirements for most settings. Exemptions include public transit, long-term care, retirement homes and other health-care settings, shelters, jails and congregate care and living settings; where masking requirements are set to be lifted on April 27.

In a March 9 release, Dr. Ian Arra, Grey-Bruce Medical Officer of Health, stated that “with provincial and local public health indicators continuing to improve and based on current vaccination rates, the timing is right to end the universal requirement for masking in indoor public places that are not considered high-risk.”

Municipality of Kincardine’s Acting Chief Administrative Officer (CAO), Roxana Baumann commented that “while masks will no longer be required in our facilities, we encourage individuals who would be more comfortable masking to continue to do so. We also ask that individuals continue to passively self-screen for COVID-19 symptoms and if you are sick, please stay home and do not come to our facilities.”
