A city in Quebec is banning nudity in its pool locker room facilities.

Brossard, which is located 20 minutes from Montreal, notified residents in its November newsletter that men and women will not be allowed to walk naked in their respective changing rooms.

According to CBC, the newsletter states that “Nudity is prohibited in changing room common areas at the Antoine-Brossard and Lucille-Teasdale swimming pools.”

The newsletter went on to ask patrons to cover themselves with their clothes or towels and use the “cabins or toilets to undress in private.”

So far there is no stated penalty if patrons break the rule and walk naked in the changing areas.

The new rules have been set into place just as the City of Brossard begins construction on a new aquatic complex.

The new building will have a universal locker room welcoming all genders. The centre is expected to be ready in 2019.
