Brampton mayor says province should consider lifting mask mandate in schools
CTV News: 'Brampton Mayor Patrick Brown says that the Ontario government should “strongly” consider following Quebec’s lead and lifting the mask mandate for elementary and secondary school students amid improving public health indicators. Quebec announced on Tuesday that it would no longer require school-aged children to wear masks in classrooms as of March 7, though they will continue to be required in common areas and on school buses.
'The announcement comes on the heels of officials in Alberta lifting the mask mandate for schools earlier this month. Alberta has also exempted children under the age of 13 from its mask policy in all other settings.'
