The re-implementation B.C.’s mask mandate means face coverings are once again required on B.C. Ferries and B.C. Transit.
Starting today, masks must be worn in all indoor public spaces in the province by anyone age 12 and older, regardless of their vaccination status. There are exemptions for people who cannot wear a mask or who cannot put on or remove a mask without the assistance of others.
The change means masks will be required on all B.C. Transit buses, at bus stops, in all indoor spaces on B.C. Ferries’ vessels and at ferry terminals.
Masks are not required for B.C. Ferries customers sitting inside a vehicle or eating food or drink in specially designated areas.
B.C. Ferries says it may require documentation from a health care professional for people claiming an exemption.
