Anyone taking the ferry to Pelee Island will have to prove that they are exempt from wearing a mask as of Monday morning.

Owen Sound Transportation Company, who runs the island ferry, says that a policy has been in place since April 22nd that requires passengers to wear face masks at all times onboard the ferries operated by the company, and while inside ferry terminal buildings.

Face masks must also be worn outdoors on ferry terminal property where physical distancing is not possible.

Exceptions to the mandatory mask-wearing policy and requirement for proof of exemption are limited to children under the age of two and individuals who cannot put on or remove a mask without assistance and are traveling without a support worker or companion who can provide that assistance.

The company says that if a passenger without a mask exemption refuses to wear a face mask once onboard the ferry or in any other designated ferry property space where face masks are mandatory, the passenger will be banned from service for the duration of the ferry operating season.

Full information can be found on their website.
