Indoor Mask Requirements End on March 21, 2022

Posted : Mar-15-2022

Starting Monday, March 21, 2022, masks will no longer be required to visit St. Theresa’s Parish.

Parishioners may choose to wear, or not wear, masks based on their personal comfort.

Other COVID-19 measures to be relaxed by March 21st:

  • All remaining restrictions on parish halls and choirs end and return to pre-pandemic operations.
  • Self-isolation requirements (see below) should a close contact test positive for COVID-19 change by March 21st.

Changes to self-isolation requirements

According to the Archdiocese of Toronto:

  • “Starting on March 21, individuals aged 18 and older, who have received their COVID-19 booster shoot and who are asymptomatic for COVID, do not need to self-isolate when they are in close contact with someone who tests positive for COVID-19 (including if the sick person is a member of their household).”
  • “The self-isolation requirement is also lifted for those younger than 18 years old who are asymptomatic and who have had two COVID-19 vaccine doses. If you meet these criteria, for 10 days, you must wear a mask in public, refrain from elective visits to medical settings and avoid physical contact with those who are vulnerable to COVID.”
  • “Those who do not meet the above criteria and who have a COVID-19 close contact, must continue to self-isolate to current provincial regulations.”

Self-screening for symptoms continues as a best practice

We continue to recommend self-screening for COVID-19 symptoms before visiting the church. As an act of charity, please stay home if you are sick and abide by public health guidance, if directed.
