York is calling on the York community to wear masks indoors

York University shares the concern of Ontario’s Chief Medical Officer of Health about Ontario’s overwhelmed children’s hospitals. As such, effective Nov. 18, 2022, the University joined him in calling on the York community to wear masks in all indoor settings except when eating or drinking.

The University paused the mandatory face mask protocol effective June 28, 2022. The University continues to monitor the impact of COVID-19 and public health guidelines and, if necessary, masking requirements will be reinstated.

Everyone’s choice to continue masking based on comfort levels and health needs should be respected.
