From Monday next week, masks will be compulsory for those traveling on public transport during Alert level 2 or higher.

The type of masks will not be policed.

However, when worn, the mask should cover the nose, mouth and chin completely.

Children will not be required to wear masks, but an exact age has not yet been decided.

Why wear masks?

Wearing masks is one thing we can do to keep people safe. However, it has to be paired with good hand hygiene and physical distancing.

Face masks prevent droplets from spreading when someone speaks, laughs, coughs or sneezes.

It helps stop the spread from people who might feel well and have no symptoms but still have Covid-19.
