Plympton-Wyoming says no to mandatory mask bylaw


Councillors in Plympton-Wyoming won’t make masks mandatory in the municipality.

The move has been promoted as a way to slow the spread of COVID-19 and prevent a possible second wave. Most Southwestern Ontario municipalities have approved a mandatory mask bylaw for indoor spaces, including Sarnia and Petrolia.

But Lambton County Council turned down the idea.

Plympton-Wyoming just completed a vote, decided against a mandatory bylaw. Councillors Bob Woolvett, Mike Vasey, and Tim Wilkins as well as Deputy Mayor Muriel Wright voted against the move. Mayor Lonny Napper and Councillors Netty McEwen and Gary Atkinson voted in favour of a mandatory bylaw.

More to come….
