The mayor of Val-David, Kathy Poulin, asking the government Legault to imitate the City of Montreal and to impose the wearing of the mask in enclosed public places throughout Quebec.
Currently, in the municipality of 5000 inhabitants in the Laurentians, wearing a mask is strongly recommended, but not mandatory.
“In Val-David, we don’t have the resources to require the wearing of the mask. We can recommend it, but, from there to impose it via regulation, it would not be easy,” said the woman, in an interview with Caroline St-Hilaire on QUB radio.
In addition, the national director of public health, Dr. Horacio Arruda, said Tuesday afternoon that the option to make it mandatory for the mask-wearing in public spaces throughout Quebec is studied as a “very intense”.
