RCMP are now wearing masks

The RCMP is following public health advice by providing front-line employees with non-medical masks. Front-line police officers can use these masks while on duty in situations where personal protective equipment (PPE) is not required but where physical distancing may be difficult or unpredictable.People in communities served by the RCMP may see RCMP officers wearing these masks while on duty.
