Hi everyone,

If you'd like to know more about how effective mask-wearing policies have been in protecting against COVID-19, there's an interesting research study that was conducted in Ontario, Canada, suggesting that face mask mandates reduce new cases by 25-31%. It's important to note, however, that Canadians are largely compliant with mask mandates. Behavioural compliance will of course vary by region. To read the study (it is not too lengthy), you can access it here.
