Aligned with the Province of Ontario’s lifting of most COVID-19 public health restrictions, the City of Kingston will remove the mandatory masking and passive screening requirements at all indoor municipal facilities on Monday, Mar. 21, 2022, according to a media release. 

This includes: 

  • All recreation facilities including Artillery Park Aquatic Centre and the INVISTA Centre 
  • Cultural facilities and museums including Kingston Grand Theatre 
  • City Hall and administrative buildings such as 1211 John Counter Blvd., and Housing and Social Services at 362 Montreal St.  
  • Kingston Frontenac Public Library branches 

Passengers aboard Kingston Transit and Kingston Access Bus, and visitors to Rideaucrest Long-Term Care Home, will be required to wear masks until Wednesday, Apr. 27, 2022, the city said.  

“We understand that everyone is emerging from the COVID-19 pandemic at their own pace. Please respect and be considerate of individuals who prefer to wear a mask when indoors or in groups after the mandate is lifted on March 21,” said Brandi Timpson, Manager, Emergency Preparedness. 

According to the release, the continued lifting of restrictions in Kingston will follow the gradual re-opening milestones outlined by the Province of Ontario.
