To help reduce the spread of COVID-19, all passengers and airport employees must wear masks at all times in the airport. There are exceptions to this rule in place, listed below.
- If you are under the age of two.
- If you are unable to remove a mask without assistance.
- If you are in the act of consuming food or beverages at one of our lounges or food and beverage locations while seated, please note, that these locations are now operating at 100% capacity and masking is required when transitioning and moving around the space and while entering and exiting the facility.
- If you have a medical condition that prevents you from wearing a mask. In this case, you are exempt from the rule provided you have a note from a licensed medical professional that certifies that you are unable to wear a mask for medical reasons. If asked by GTAA Public Safety Officer, Peel Regional Police or a CATSA screening officer, explain that you have a medical condition.
- Province of Ontario regulations now require that patrons seeking access to certain dining and lounge operations and other food and drink establishments at Pearson must show proof of identification and proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 to a representative of the operator of the establishment before they can enter the area.
