Tina McCulloch, who is now riding the TTC three or four times a week since her office in Toronto recently reopened, said she thinks extending the mask mandate for high-risk settings is “excellent and necessary” but believes there shouldn’t be an “arbitrary date” to lift it.

“When we stop wearing masks should be based on case counts (and) hospital admissions and not the calendar,” she said.

However, McCulloch said she typically feels safe taking public transit, as she wear a high-quality N95 mask and moves away if another passenger is unmasked or coughing.

“Having said that, last week when I was on a packed subway train with rowdy, unmasked Raptors fans, I felt very uncomfortable,” she added.
