The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) has voted unanimously to make wearing face masks mandatory on the city's transit system, beginning on July 2.
Certain exceptions will be made for people who have medical conditions, and riders under two years old.
“I think it is a significant step forward for us in containing the spread of COVID-19 and making sure people feel confident and safe on the TTC” as Toronto begins to reopens, said Mayor Tory.
Stuart Green, a TTC spokesperson, said it will take until July 2 before they can implement the mask rule because their agency will require some time to roll out its educational campaign regarding the new policy.
The TTC also plans to provide one million non-reusable masks to residents on a one-time basis to make sure everyone has access to the face masks. Distribution of the face masks will be prioritized marginalized communities first.
