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

Naloxone is a life-saving medication that can temporarily reverse an opioid overdose, restore breathing within two to five minutes, and allow time for medical help to arrive.
