No more mandatory masking in Nova Scotia schools

The requirement is officially lifted as of May 24, when kids return to classes after the Victoria Day weekend:

The Department of Education and Early Childhood Development will remove the mask requirement in Nova Scotia’s public schools beginning Tuesday, May 24.
Becky Druhan, Minister of Education and Early Childhood Development, said today, May 19, that masks will continue to be recommended and that those students, staff, outside service providers, volunteers and visitors who choose to wear a mask will be supported.
Minister Druhan said masks helped schools mitigate the impact of COVID-19’s sixth wave. But as warmer weather approaches in June and classes can spend more time outdoors, and with Nova Scotia’s health data and school attendance data improving, Minister Druhan said now is the time to make masks optional in schools.
