COVID-19 Health & Safety

Protect yourself and others

As facilities reopen, the City of Markham will continue to follow advice from public health officials at the regional, provincial and federal levels. The health and safety of our service users, the community and our staff remain our number one priority as we navigate the pandemic, together.

As of March 1, 2022, proof of vaccination is no longer required at City of Markham facilities.

As of March 21, 2022, general masking requirements will be lifted; however, masking will still be required in certain indoor settings, including:

  • public transit, including indoor areas and vehicles. This does not include businesses or organizations that provide sightseeing or touring services
  • health care settings including:
    • hospitals
    • psychiatric facilities
    • doctors’ offices
    • immunization clinics
    • laboratories
    • specimen collection centres
  • home and community care provider locations only if you are an employee or contractor
  • long-term care and retirement homes
  • shelters and other congregate care settings that provide care and services to medically and socially vulnerable individuals

For a complete list of settings and exceptions to masking requirements that may apply, please refer to O. Reg. 364/20.

To keep our community safe, York Region Public Health is advising residents to practice physical distancing, wash hands often, avoid touching your face with unwashed hands, wearing a mask or face covering, and regularly cleaning high touch surfaces.

We also encourage every eligible individual to get vaccinated as soon as possible to help slow the spread of COVID-19. Many convenient options and locations are available within York Region to receive a vaccine by walking in or booking an appointment. Visit for the latest information.
