Unusual circumstances sometimes call for unusual actions.

This new bylaw was voted on unanimously and passed by town council on Monday, July 27. 

Just having the mask on won’t be good enough as it will need to cover your mouth, chin, and nose.

Anyone who doesn't follow the new rules could be fined $150.
