UManitoba announces end of mandatory masking on campus


The University of Manitoba has announced that masks will no longer be required on campus starting in May. UManitoba President Michael Benarroch explained that the practice of masking stayed in place for longer than at other postsecondary institutions in order to protect the most vulnerable individuals. UManitoba is still recommending masks, especially in indoor spaces, and will still be providing masks for those who would like to wear them. The university will also be enhancing its HVAC system in Fall 2023 to support optimal air quality.
