Canadians encouraged to wear non-medical face masks in public

He was first seen wearing a mask in public during a May 6 Canadian Armed Forces repatriation ceremony.

Canadian health officials once recommended against the wearing of face masks but adjusted that advice in early April when it became clear COVID-19 can be spread by people who aren't showing symptoms. "So if two people wear masks, I'm protecting you and you're protecting me", Tam explained.

On Wednesday, Dr. Theresa Tam, the chief public health officer for Canada, recommended Canadians wear non-medical face masks in public when they aren't sure they will be able to physically distance. Importantly, however, employers considering these recommendations must also aim to strike a balance with the recommendations of applicable provincial and local public health authorities.

The disclaimer comes despite the company's tariff - the contract between airline and passenger - which states that "the unused portion of the passenger's ticket (s) will be refunded" in the same form as it was purchased, "should the alternate transportation proposed by the carrier not meet the passenger's satisfaction".

However, she said lower levels of government could make masks mandatory.

"Although we don't fully understand their role in transmission, it is an added layer of protection, even for people who don't have symptoms", she explained.

In addition to the myriad of considerations for employers to consider as they plan for re-openings and the return of employees to physical workplaces, when creating workplace policies related to the use of masks at work, employers should take into account the specific requirements of their workforce.

In Toronto's west end on Thursday, several people standing in line at big box stores were wearing masks. "It's really not a big deal to wear a mask".

Tam said accessibility is one of the considerations regarding mandatory mask use, because not everyone can wear a mask. It makes you wonder if we all should have been doing this since March.

This is why it is best to avoid jewellery that will draw unwanted attention and take away the focus from what you are presenting. A delicate diamond ring, a simple platinum or gold band looks great and works well with both Indian as well as western outfits.

"It seems like the government has been saying for months that masks don't help, but now they supposedly do?"

Lukacs said the law requires airlines to refund customers, adding that fares may well go up in the coming year, reducing the value of travel credit.

The strategy there is to test the right people at the right time to catch infections, he said, and to do otherwise would mean wasted tests that yield false results.

Canada has reported more than 81,700 cases of COVID-19, including almost 6,200 deaths.

"It could cause some serious challenges", she said.

"This virus can accelerate really quickly".

Trudeau said the government is now working with "number of different partners" on potential contact tracing and exposure notification applications, and that in the coming weeks Ottawa intends to "recommend strongly to Canadians a particular app that will help us manage the spread of COVID-19".

More than a million Indigenous people live in cities or off reserves, Trudeau said, and they deserve good services that are culturally appropriate.

The idea behind the app is to track anyone the user has been in close contact with, and alert them if they have been near someone with a confirmed or presumed case of the viral disease.
