Despite a mandatory face covering order in effect, there still seems to be many questions.

The by-law will kick in on Monday, forcing residents to wear a mask in indoor public spaces, public transit and bus shelters.

With all this in mind, there are some intricacies and exceptions that weren't made crystal clear during the meeting.

So the region has put up a handy Frequently Asked Questions page on their website, touching on all aspects of masks, from the responsibility of business owners, how will the order impact summer camps and even how to make a mask.

Looking at enforcement, while the region is hoping the goodwill of residents will prevail and hasn't set a fine amount, Grand River Transit has the ability to issue a $240 fine for non-compliance.
