Charles Breton and Ji Yoon Han May 11, 2022

Among them, Quebec is the only one still requiring mask in indoor public space. As of May 10, the Centre of Excellence on the Canadian Federation’s stringency index shows that public health measures are the least stringent they have been since the start of the pandemic, across all provinces and territories.
