Ontario should have extended masking for all high-risk settings, says new science table head – CBC

Province reports 10 more deaths, 549 COVID-19 hospitalizations on Thursday

Jun 09, 2022

The head of Ontario’s expert pandemic advisory table says while key indicators suggest COVID-19 in the province is improving, he would have liked to see all remaining mask mandates in high-risk settings in place for a little while longer.

On Wednesday, the province’s chief medical officer of health, announced most mask mandatory mask rules will expire Saturday, including on transit and in hospitals. Masks will still be required in Ontario long-term care homes and retirement homes after Saturday,

Dr. Fahad Razak, the new scientific director of Ontario’s COVID-19 science advisory table, told CBC Radio’s Metro Morning the provincial requirement could have been extended for at least four more weeks to help relieve some of the pressure on hospitals that will now have to enforce their own mask rules.

“I’m heartened to see many hospitals have already announced that they will continue to require them,” Razak said Thursday. “I suspect you’ll see most institutions will require it.”
