From the Town of Bracebridge:
Following the guidance provided by the Government of Ontario and the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit, the Town of Bracebridge continues to resume transit services using a gradual and phased approach. On March 9, 2022, the provincial Chief Medical Officer announced that Ontario will remove the mandatory masking requirement for most settings on March 21, 2022 with the exception of public transit, health care settings, long-term care homes and congregate care settings.
Bracebridge Transit and Bracebridge Mobility will continue to require patrons to wear masks and face coverings until further guidance and updates from the Government of Ontario and the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.
The use of face coverings on public transit is a public health measure, along with physical distancing, hand hygiene, cough etiquette, and staying home when sick, that continues to assist in the prevention of the spread of COVID-19 within our community. More information on face coverings is available from the Simcoe Muskoka District Health Unit.

4 ambulatory seats or an area to accommodate 2 standard wheelchairs.
