Masks and face coverings are now mandatory indoors in Toronto and surrounding regions, but exactly who can opt-out of wearing the masks has become increasingly murky as fake medical exemption cards have begun to be distributed.

Officially, only children under the age of two or people with medical conditions are allowed to avoid donning a mask. Some are finding those guidelines a little opaque, and further muddying the waters are anti-maskers apparently selling fake medical exemption cards online.

Toronto Public Health was forced to respond to phony exemption cards on Twitter, noting businesses are not permitted to require proof of medical exemptions. It also noted that the cards are not endorsed by the health agency.
