On Friday June 26, 2020, Kingston, Frontenac, Lennox and Addington Public Health issued an Order under s.22 of the Health Protection and Promotion Act that requires businesses and municipal facilities to prohibit entry to people who are not wearing a face covering, with specific exemptions noted. Despite these clearly stated exemptions, a number of people in the community have reported being refused service because their face is not covered. This blog post will take a look at competing rights and obligations when it comes to face coverings under the current Order.
For many couples, a lot of planning goes in to their wedding day. The current global Covid-19 pandemic and State of Emergency in Ontario have thrown a wrench into the wedding plans of many couples. A cancelled wedding can cause a lot of headache - but it can also have a big impact on the legal rights of couples. Over the next few posts, our blog will be taking a look at some of these impacts.

You should not attempt to apply these hypothetical scenarios to real-world situations: if you have questions about your own situation, please contact a lawyer.
