B.C. Human Rights Commisioner

 Exemptions to mandatory mask order

The poster clarifies that you do not have to wear a mask if:

  • you are under 12 years old
  • you are unable to wear a mask because of a health condition or physical or mental impairment
  • you are unable to put on or remove a mask without help from another person

People who are able to wear a mask, but who choose not to as a matter of preference are not exempt. People who are not exempt but refuse to wear a mask in an indoor public setting could be subject to a fine.

The poster advises business owners that:

  • If a person claims a mask exemption, take them at their word. Proof should not be required.
  • Business owners cannot be fined for allowing people without masks to enter their place of business.
