Residents of Inuvik are now required to wear masks while inside town facilities.

The policy is being introduced in an effort to prevent the spread of COVID-19, a press release reads.

The rules around mandatory masks will differ in each facility and patrons are asked to check with front desk staff upon entering town facilities.

Inuvik is the latest community to introduce mandatory masks. The CBC reported Fort Simpson passed a resolution encouraging stores to make masks mandatory on Nov. 23.

Fort Smith made masks mandatory for town facilities on Nov. 26.
