Mask mandate: Compulsory indoors, optional outdoors

PETALING JAYA: Wearing face masks is still compulsory when indoors and while using public transport, says Khairy Jamaluddin.

The Health Minister said, however, that while face masks were no longer mandatory in outdoor spaces, the practice was highly encouraged as it could reduce the spread of Covid-19.

Malaysia made face-mask wearing mandatory from August 1, 2020, which was enforced under the Prevention and Control of Infectious Diseases Act 1988 (Act 342).
