We want our city to thrive, for businesses to stay open and for Calgarians to stay healthy. The COVID-19 pandemic has been tough on local businesses, and a second wave of cases may further exacerbate and already challenged economy. With businesses reopening, more social interactions and the number of cases increasing in Calgary, City Council determined that additional measures are necessary to help mitigate a potential resurgence of the virus.

On July 21, City Council voted to pass the Temporary Face Coverings Bylaw, mandating that face coverings be worn in all indoor public spaces and in public vehicles.

The new bylaw comes into force on August 1, 2020.
