On June 11, 2022, the Ontario government lifted most of its remaining provincial masking requirements, including in public transit settings.
The Government of Ontario released a new reopening plan for Ontario that aims on being long-term. This new plan outlines government strategies towards the goal of lifting COVID-19 restrictions by March 2022.
Whereas mask usage was once merely recommended, all levels of government have gradually introduced new laws requiring mandatory mask wearing in a variety of settings. As may have been expected, there has been push-back against mandatory mask laws.
