Current public health measures

Face mask requirements

In accordance with the Government of Ontario’s direction, most of the remaining mandatory masking requirements, including on public transit and healthcare settings, will be lifted as of 12:00 a.m. on June 11, 2022.

Masks will still be required in long-term care facilities and retirement homes, and strongly recommended for higher-risk settings, like congregate care and living spaces.

Businesses and organizations have the authority to keep their own mask policies and requirements in place, and you can continue to wear a mask if you feel it is the right choice for you.

Travel regulations

Depending on your travel plans and your vaccination status, you may need to get tested before or after travel. Travellers are encouraged to check the travel requirements for their destination in advance.

Protect yourself and others

As the province moves towards a long-term plan of living with and managing COVID-19, we can all continue to do our part to keep each other safe and stop the spread, including:

  • getting vaccinated, and receiving booster doses when eligible
  • staying home if you have symptoms of COVID-19 or have tested positive
  • wearing a mask if you are recovering from COVID-19 or a close contact of someone with COVID-19 or symptoms
  • wearing a mask if you are at higher risk of severe illness or health outcomes from COVID-19, such as people who are older, pregnant or with certain medical conditions
  • taking everyday action, like washing your hands and disinfecting surfaces
