Now mandatory for all to wear a mask
- The Multi-Ministry Taskforce will now make the wearing of masks mandatory for anyone leaving their house
- This applies on public transport, taxis, private hire cars, walking to or at markets, and also at all workplace premises, whether they are frontline staff or performing back-office functions
- Individuals may remove their mask while engaging in strenuous exercise outdoors but they must put it back on after completing their exercise
- Mask-wearing is not recommended for young children below the age of 2 for child safety reasons
- First-time offenders will be issued a fine of $300, and repeat offenders will face higher fines or prosecution in court for egregious cases.
- The general public is still advised to stay home and avoid going out
- The wearing of masks is an important precaution we can all take, as it is impossible to avoid contact completely when out for the purchase of necessities.
