Mask usage will no longer be mandatory to wear in workplaces, according to Quebec health officials.
On Wednesday morning, the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) announced that face masks will no longer be mandatory in workplaces starting Monday, February 28th, as long as there is a minimum two-metre distance kept between people.
Despite the leniency, the CNESST does recommend that masks be worn in high-traffic and commonplace areas in the workplace. The continuation of cleaning surface areas and the washing and disinfecting of hands will not be lifted, and is still mandatory.
