Most remaining mask mandates in Ontario to lift June 11

Ontario’s top doctor has announced that most remaining COVID-19 mask mandates in the province will lift this weekend.

“With high vaccination rates and Ontario’s COVID-19 situation continuing to improve, most of the province’s remaining provincial masking requirements, including on public transit, will expire as of 12:00 a.m. on June 11, 2022,” Chief Medical Officer of Health Dr. Kieran Moore said in a statement issued Wednesday.

The order was set to expire June 11, after it was extended in April. However, the Ministry of Health told CTV News Toronto earlier this week that Dr. Moore was reviewing and monitoring key indicators across the province before committing to the date.

Masks will continue to be required in long-term care and retirement homes.
