PHO order on masks in public indoor settings


The Provincial Health Officer has issued an order effective today, August 25, that requires masks in all public indoor settings for all people born in 2009 or earlier (12+). To comply with this order, masks are required to be worn to enter all Peace River Regional District facilities, as they are public spaces.

There are exemptions for:

  • People with health conditions or with physical, cognitive or mental impairments who cannot wear one
  • People who cannot remove a mask on their own
  • Children under the age of 12
  • People who need to remove their masks to communicate due to another person’s hearing impairment

Our organization would like to thank residents for their cooperation as we continue to navigate the changing COVID-19 landscape.
