Most Mask Mandates Lifted March 21st

Most Mask Mandates Lifted March 21st

all directives drop by April 27

THUNDER BAY, SAULT STE MARIE, SUDBURY, ONTARIO ~~~~~  March 9, 2022  (LSNews)    Dr. Kieran Moore, Ontario’s chief medical officer of health announced today that Ontario it will be lifting the mask mandate in many indoor public settings on March 21 removing masking requirements in all remaining settings, as well as any other directives and orders, on April 27.

With continued improvement in trends, Ontario will remove the mandatory masking requirement for most settings on March 21, with the exception of select settings such as public transit, health care settings, long-term care homes and congregate care settings.

As a society, we must remain kind, considerate and respectful toward those who continue wearing a mask. We must also expect indicators, such as cases and hospitalizations, to increase slightly as Ontarians increasingly interact with one another. However, thanks to our high vaccination rates and natural immunity, as well as the arrival of antivirals, Ontario has the tools necessary to manage the impact of the virus.

While this does not signal that COVID-19 has disappeared or that the pandemic is over, it does mean that we have come to a place where we know what we need to do to manage this virus and to keep each other safe.

Date What’s Changing?
March 14: Mandatory vaccination policies end • Revoke Directive 6 • Revoke letters of instruction to Ministry of Children, Community and Social Services, Ministry of Seniors and Accessibility and Ministry of Education • Revoke Minister of Long-Term Care directive on immunization policy

March 21: Most masking mandates end • Remove masking requirements in most places (including schools), except public transit, long-term care, retirement homes and other health-care settings, shelters, jails and congregate care and living settings, including homes for individuals with developmental disabilities • Lift other measures in schools, including removing cohorting and daily on-site screening • All other regulatory requirements for businesses removed, including passive screening, safety plans

March 28: Reopening Ontario Act expires • Reopening Ontario Act (ROA) expires 6

April 27: All remaining measures, directives and orders end • Remove masking requirements in all remaining settings • Any remaining emergency orders under ROA expire • Revoke Directives 1, 2.1, 3,4 and 5
