As of March 21, 2022, you must wear a mask in the following indoor spaces:
- public transit, including indoor areas and vehicles. This does not include businesses or organizations that provide sightseeing or touring services;
- health care settings, including hospitals, psychiatric facilities, doctors’ offices, immunization clinics, laboratories and specimen collection centres;

Read O. Reg 364/20 for a complete list of settings where you must wear a mask.
Regardless of where you are, you are encouraged to wear a tight-fitting, well constructed mask if you feel it is the right choice for you.
Businesses and organizations may also choose to implement their own rules related to masking.
To help stop the spread of COVID-19, you should wear a mask at all times when outside your home in public spaces (including school and child care, unless under 2 years of age), when:
- you are recovering from COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19
- you are a close contact of someone with COVID-19 or symptoms of COVID-19
