Western, Brescia end masking requirements in instructional spaces


Western University has announced that it will no longer require mask use in instructional spaces. Western is instead now “strongly encouraging masks” in crowded indoor spaces and large classrooms, and asking members of its community to be considerate of others who may request the use of masks. The university says that the changes align with public health advice. Brescia University College will follow Western’s lead by drop masking requirements, while King’s University College will reportedly not be changing its masking procedures at this time.
