However, users can wear a face covering if they wish. “The decision to wear the mask, both in public places and in public transport, will remain a personal choice”, mentioned the Minister of Health, Christian Dubé, during the announcement on June 8.

Note that wearing a mask remains mandatory in hospitals, CHSLDs, CLSCs and clinics.

It is also recommended that vulnerable people, such as the elderly or immunocompromised, continue to wear face coverings.

“In addition, people who have had COVID-19 must wear the mask during any social interaction for at least five days following their isolation at home. Those living with a person with COVID-19 must also wear it for 10 days”, also specified the Ministry of Health.
