Masks Now Mandatory in PEI
Please be prepared to wear your mask onboard your next T3 Transit trip.
“Effective November 20, 2020, non-medical masks or face coverings will be mandatory in all indoor public spaces in Prince Edward Island.
Chief Public Health Officer, Dr. Heather Morrison, says the change is, in large part, due to the surging COVID-19 cases across the country.”

Stores and retail businesses;
Personal services and salons;
Restaurants (except when eating or drinking);
Arts, sports and recreation facilities (except during exercise or when masks cannot be worn);

Exemptions to mandatory masks include, but not limited to:
Children under the age of 2;
Children under 5 who will not wear a mask;
Anyone who cannot remove a mask without assistance; and
