Earlier this month, the Quebec government discussed the possibility of ending all mask mandates by mid-April, but looks like that date will arrive sooner than expected.

Interim Director of Public Health Dr. Luc Boileau announced that the government is considering moving up that deadline in a press conference on Thursday.

He explained to the media that the government needs a few more days to analyze the health situation, now that students are going back to school after their March break.

Once this new information becomes available to them, they will then come up with a final conclusion as to when mask mandates will come to a stop in the province (with exceptions). He predicts the deadline to be at the end of March, at the earliest.

This news comes after Ontario’s announcement that they will be ending mask requirements in most places on March 21, 2022.
