British Columbians will no longer have to wear masks in low-risk, indoor public spaces starting Friday.

During a news conference on Thursday, Provincial Health Officer Dr. Bonnie Henry said some people will continue to wear masks, and some businesses may choose to ask patrons to wear them, but they are no longer required under an order.

“We need to support that. We need to recognize that we all have our own risks and our own vulnerabilities,” Henry said.

Masks will still be required in health-care settings, such as physician’s offices. Workplaces may still require masks to be worn, but it is no longer a requirement of workplace safety plans.

Masks will be encouraged in spaces where physical distancing is difficult to maintain, such as on public transit and on B.C. Ferries, but they will not be required.
