It will mean that all air passengers will be required to wear non-medical masks or face-coverings to cover their mouth and nose during travel.
For ferries, operators will continue to have the choice:
Operators are encouraged to provide public messaging to travellers about the need to have non-medical masks or face coverings before and during their journey – if they can’t maintain physical distancing. Our Association will put some social media messaging on this that can be used by operators.
To be clear: this measure does not include employees. Operators are free to decide, on their own, if staff can or need to wear non-medical masks or face coverings.
Additionally, please find below various links from Transport Canada on the new guidelines related to non-medical masks and face coverings for passengers on ferries.
Please note that we will be tweeting, in both official languages, various social media messages related to this and other announcements as they are released. You can find us on Twitter @canadianferry
