Melaka urges wearing of masks in public areas

Launching a comeback: Students may once again be required to mask up in school.

MELAKA: Wearing of face masks in public areas, including schools, especially for those with Covid-19 symptoms is encouraged in line with the recommendations of the Health Ministry, says a state executive councillor.

State health, human resources and unity committee chairman Ngwe Hee Sem said the measure was an effort to curb the spread of Covid-19 in the state even though the daily cases were dropping.

“Melaka will follow the recommendations, guidelines and standard operating procedure (SOP) issued by the ministry.

“Currently, the wearing of face masks in public areas is just a recommendation and not compulsory. But if the wearing of face masks becomes mandatory in the future, we will follow the SOP,” he told reporters at the state open house at the Melaka International Trade Centre here yesterday, Bernama reported.

Currently, the ministry encourages the wearing of face masks in public places and for those with Covid-19 symptoms.
