Wearing a mask will be mandatory in the public transportation in Toronto from the 2nd of July.
The canadian city joins a list of cities around the world who have decided to force the port to cover their face in public transport, including New York and Berlin, to limit the transmission of the coronavirus.
The Toronto Transit Commission (TTC) denotes that this obligation does not apply to children under two years of age or persons with a health problem that makes the port and the installation of the mask difficult or impossible.

According to observations of the “24 Hours”, less than half of the users in the Montreal metro wear a mask when they travel in it. However, it is still possible to maintain a good distance between the people inside the cars, a situation that could change over the next few months with the recovery of the economy.
