Mar 21 2022, 1:40 pm

The province has officially lifted mask mandates in most settings, but there are still some spaces where a mask is required.

Ready or not, mask mandates have been removed for retail settings, in restaurants and schools. COVID-19 requirements for businesses, including screening employees, also comes to an end today.

While you’ll no longer need to wear a mask in most settings, officials strongly encourage everyone to continue wearing them.

Toronto has also lifted the City’s mask by-law, in line with the province’s timeline.

Here’s where you will need to continue wearing a mask:

  • Public transit
  • long-term care homes
  • retirement homes and other healthcare settings
  • shelters
  • jails and congregate care and living settings

Masking in these settings will be lifted on April 27, when all COVID-19 public health measures in the province will come to an end.
