Face masks or coverings mandatory in York Region

Face masks or coverings mandatory in York Region

As you know, effective Friday, July 17, 2020, anyone visiting enclosed public spaces must wear a face mask or covering to reduce the spread of COVID-19 in York Region.

York Regional Council endorsed a recommendation from York Region Medical Officer of Health Dr. Karim Kurji to issue an instruction requiring operators of enclosed public spaces, including places of worship, to have a policy in place that prohibits persons from entering premises of the establishment if the person is not wearing a face mask or covering. Signage must be posted at all entrances advising everyone to wear a mask.

The instruction will remain in place until Monday, November 30, 2020.

This policy is subject to appropriate exemptions. Those exempt from wearing a face mask or covering in indoor public spaces are:

  • Children under five years of age
  • Individuals with medical conditions rendering them unable to safely wear a mask including breathing difficulties or cognitive difficulties or difficulties in hearing or processing information
  • Anyone who has trouble breathing
  • Anyone who is unable to remove the mask without help
  • Anyone who is unconscious or incapacitated
  • Anyone wearing a face covering that would inhibit the ability to breathe in any way such as, but not limited to, during moderate to intense physical activity (such as running) or activity that would preclude its use (such as swimming)
  • Anyone who requires accommodation under the Ontario Human Rights Code

This instruction is applied in good faith and provides an opportunity to educate people on the use of face masks and coverings, combined with other ongoing recommended public health practices.

Learn more about what you need to know as an operator at york.ca/mandatorymasks where you will find information, resources and materials including a downloadable sample policy and downloadable signage.

Please continue to encourage your congregation to practice physical distancing of at least two metres, enhanced handwashing and respiratory etiquette and to follow provincial guidelines on social circles and social gatherings.

Subject: Guidance for Re-Opening Places of Worship
To: HEOC Liaison <[email protected]>

Good afternoon,

As you know, the COVID-19 pandemic continues to evolve, remaining a public health emergency. We have heard from many in our community regarding the recent Provincial allowances for places of worship, and the desire for more information and guidance.

To help, we’re attaching our most recent COVID-19: Guidance For Re-Opening Places of Worship (PDF) in an effort to aid you as you begin the process of re-opening your facilities. The guidance document includes many sections that will be of interest to you: from preparation, to health and safety messaging on service, cleaning and disinfection, and even information on drive-in gatherings.

We ask again that you share this information with your staff, partners, associates and especially members of your community. As we return to in-person gatherings, we hope that you will find this guidance both informative and helpful, so that we may all pray and worship in a safe and healthy way, together.

Further guidance on COVID-19 including information on how to protect yourself, symptoms, treatment and testing, supports for families with young children and community supports are available at: york.ca/covid19.

If you have additional questions, you may contact York Region Public Health – Health Connection at: 1-800-361-5653, Monday to Sunday from 8:30 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. to speak with a public health professional.

Thank you and stay safe,

VOV VIRTUAL ON-LINE SUMMER SESSIONS:

In compliance with the guidelines of the Ontario Government, School Boards and Public Health Professionals, we at VOV have made the tough decision to cancel our 2020 on-site Summer Camp scheduled for July 20th to July 31st.   While the community – the students, teachers, parents, counselors and volunteers –  look forward to this niche annual camp to connect, engage, build friendships and learn; we must adhere to the protocol of physical and social distancing for everyone’s safety.

Behind the fear and threats brought about by the Covid 19, opportunities have also arisen and we, at VOV have pooled our resources and strengths collaboratively to develop and offer your children online interactive and engaging options in lieu of the 2020 physical on-site Summer Camp.  We are very excited for this opportunity to adapt to the new norm, to still be able to learn in fun safe way, to stay connected and maintain our good relations.

We promise online interactive workshop type sessions lead by our qualified facilitators that are time appropriate for the young minds to grab and engage their attention span.  The themes will continue to be aligned with Hindu values and culture; including sessions on dharmic values, yoga, breathing, meditation, singing, instruments, dancing, cooking and crafts.  The dates are July 20th to July 24th
