KUCHING: It will be mandatory for the public to wear face masks when they are in crowded places or travelling on public transportation come Aug 1, says Senior Minister (Security Cluster) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.
He said following the special National Security Council (MKN) meeting today, the government has decided to make it compulsory for the people to wear face masks following the lack of compliance to the standard operating procedures (SOP) recently.
More people are not adhering to the SOP particularly when they board public transportation such as the LRT or buses or even on planes. Apart from that, a lot of people no longer seem to practice social distancing as well.
That is why the government decided today that starting Aug 1, it is compulsory to wear face masks in public transportation and in crowded areas, he told a press conference in Putrajaya.
