ON institutions announce changes, extensions to mask, vaccine mandates

April 18, 2022
As mask mandates at Ontario institutions are set to expire, several institutions have made the decision to extend them due to the current COVID-19 case counts while others will continue to drop requirements as planned. Mohawk College will drop its COVID-19 measures on April 18th and will continue to recommend masks, while the University of Waterloo will lift masking and vaccine requirements on May 1st. The University of Guelph’s mask mandate will be kept in place after May 1st. McMaster University’s mask mandate will stay in place until the end of May in response to case count predictions. Wilfrid Laurier University will also keep its mask mandates until the end of May, but will drop vaccination requirements as of May 1st.
