Face masks will be mandatory on Winnipeg Transit buses starting Saturday, the city says in a news release.
Masks will also be required for people using Winnipeg Transit Plus or going into any city-run facilities.
People not wearing masks while taking the bus could face a $100 fine for not following the new rules, the release says.
Employees will tell people who come into those spaces without masks that they are required to wear one, but people will not be denied service for refusing to wear one, the release says. The city also noted there are reasons some people may not be able to wear masks.
If widespread non-compliance becomes an issue, the city may bring in enforcement measures, the release says, though it does not specify what that could look like.
