In the Airport

While the Province of Ontario has lifted all COVID-19 restrictions, a face covering is required in federally regulated areas such as pre-board security screening, post security waiting area, deplaning an aircraft and on board your flight.

YQG requests that only ticketed passengers enter the terminal area. If you are not wearing a face covering you may be approached by staff to request that you put one on to comply. There are exceptions to the mandatory face covering mandate:

  • Children under the age of two or the developmental age of five who refuse or cannot be persuaded to wear a face covering.
  • Persons with an underlying medical condition which inhibits their ability to wear a face covering.
  • Persons who are unable to place or remove a face covering without assistance.
  • Persons who are reasonably accommodated by not wearing a face covering under the Human Rights Code.
  • Persons while receiving services involving the face and requiring temporary removal of the face covering.
  • Temporary removal of the face covering is required for:
    • Identification purposes; or
    • To facilitate communication with persons with disabilities;
    • For the sole purpose of eating or drinking.
