Canada doesn't have a particularly high immunity rate from COVID-19, she said, because most of the population has not contracted the virus. Importantly, however, employers considering these recommendations must also aim to strike a balance with the recommendations of applicable provincial and local public health authorities. She had long stressed that masks should be reserved for those with COVID-19 and for medical staff to preserve supplies.

Trudeau said he will be wearing a mask as he walks into Parliament for sittings, but once at his desk in the chamber, where he is two metres apart from other MPs, he plans to take it off.

Foran said people with severe allergies might also find wearing a mask hard at this time of year.

Horgan said the province is in a "solid position" in terms of providing health-care workers in acute-care settings with personal protective equipment. She did not suggest she regrets recommending against using face masks earlier.

"It is our expectation that when the time comes for that to be released, we will be able to recommend strongly to Canadians a particular app that will help us manage the spread of COVID-19", he said.
