Wearing a face covering in public settings

The public (people over the age of 12) is prohibited from accessing and circulating in the following places without wearing a face covering: 

  • Retail businesses 
  • Service companies (e.g. pharmacies) 
  • Private practices of professionals 
  • Locations where municipal or government services are offered

For more details, visit quebec.ca.

 

THE IMPORTANCE OF PHYSICAL DISTANCING FOR THE ENTIRE POPULATION

At the present time, everyone is asked to make an effort to physically distance themselves from others. It means avoiding all means of socialization with other people.

Those who can work from home are encouraged to do so, and if you must take public transit, try to do so outside of rush hours. If you have to go outside, make sure to follow the proper hygiene measures (frequent hand washes, avoid touching your face, coughing in your elbow) and maintain a distance of at least two meters (6 feet) with other individuals to minimize the chances of catching or spreading a virus.

 

Please note that in the context of COVID-19, people refusing to comply with the rules of distancing and not gathering in public spaces, such as parks, could be fined between $1,000 and $6,000 by the SPVM.

 

Beaconsfield implements a Physical Distancing Squad

To support the public health self-isolation and physical distancing guidelines, the City has set up a mobile squad which will patrol the streets in areas known to be popular gathering locations. Equipped with loudspeakers, the vehicles will broadcast reminders of the 2-meter distance rule to walkers, joggers and cyclists.
