Masks mandatory by July 27

The city is making masks mandatory in indoor public spaces as of July 27 (why not sooner?). There’s no list yet of the categories of space to be included and I don’t think they really mean “public” if we’re talking about places like groceries, malls and cinemas as mentioned in La Presse. Those are not public spaces.

Meantime, the new health minister, Christian Dubé, says he’ll close or fine bars and clubs if they don’t enforce distancing, because there are too many examples already of the rules being broken – as if anyone couldn’t’ve foreseen this. But it isn’t like we have a bar compliance brigade.
