Waterloo Region – On November 25, Dr. Hsiu-Li Wang issued a Section 22 Order to shopping malls and retail stores that requires owners and operators to ensure capacity is managed and actively monitored, such that adequate physical distancing can be maintained in shopping malls and retail stores. In addition to the other requirements that need to be followed for their settings as outlined in the Reopening Ontario Act, 2020 (ROA). The order comes into effect on Friday, November 27 at 12:01 a.m.

COVID-19 is present in Waterloo Region and poses a health risk to residents through community transmission. The risk of transmission is increased in close contact environments where persons are within two metres distance and/or not wearing face coverings. Shopping malls and retail stores are vulnerable to overcrowding during the busy holiday shopping season.

“I wish to acknowledge the hard work of owners and operators and the measures they have implemented to protect our community,” said Region of Waterloo, Medical Officer of Health, Dr. Hsiu-Li Wang. “This order works to further limit the spread of COVID-19 and protect shoppers and employees in these settings vulnerable to overcrowding.”

All residents are reminded to:

Practice physical distancing
Wear a face covering in indoor settings and when physical distancing cannot be guaranteed
Wash your hands thoroughly and often
Stay home if you have any symptoms, even if only mild symptoms
Book an appointment to get tested if you have symptoms
