Mandatory Masking Indoor Public Spaces
Effective Friday, September 17, 2021 an interim province-wide mandatory masking order will be implemented for all indoor public spaces, including schools.
Indoor public spaces are any enclosed space other than a private home or dwelling. This may include but is not exclusive to workplaces, retail locations, recreational venues, eating and dining establishments and professional buildings. “Indoor public spaces” includes those areas of a business or venue that are restricted to staff only (areas where there is no access for the public).

UPDATE ON COVID-19 COMMUNITY IMPACT
Waskesiu Townsite Information
The health and safety of visitors, employees and all Canadians is of the utmost importance and Parks Canada will follow the advice and guidance of public health authorities in resuming visitor access and services. Only places and activities where health and safety risks can be mitigated will be available for visitation.
Opening Parks Canada places to visitors offers Canadians opportunities to physically distance in natural settings. The government is asking Canadians to be cautious and conservative in their use of these places, to observe travel restrictions, to respect the guidance of public health authorities, and to make every effort to flatten the curve and keep one another safe.
Visitors should not expect the kind of experience that they have had in the past. Parks Canada is adapting to the COVID-19 situation and visitor access and services will be limited.
Please follow Parks Canada’s social media channels and visit our website for information and updates on the status of all Parks Canada.
