Ismail Sabri clarifies face mask rule

FMT Reporters -August 3, 2020 2:52 PM

PETALING JAYA: Senior Minister for Security Ismail Sabri Yaakob today clarified the rule on the mandatory use of face masks in public, saying it only applies for crowded areas where physical distancing cannot be observed.

“There was a viral post yesterday that said action would also be taken against those in their own cars. That is not true,” he said.

“If we are at public places like a football field where social distancing can be observed, you don’t need to wear a mask.

“If there is someone sitting by himself at the beach… it’s a large place, so he won’t be fined,” he added.

PETALING JAYA: Face masks must be worn in crowded public places such as markets, tourist destinations and cinemas, clarifies Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

“Starting August 1, it is mandatory to wear face masks in public transportation, such as bus, trains, LRT, taxi, e-hailing vehicles.

“Crowded public places, that are listed by the National Security Council, include wet markets, wholesale markets, night markets and supermarkets.

“Tourist destinations, as well as cinemas, have also been designated as crowded public areas, ” he said in a press conference on Monday (Aug 3).

The Senior Minister debunked false viral messages claiming that wearing masks in one’s own private vehicle was mandatory.

“It is very clear that the rules apply to public vehicles. If you are in a car with your family, you do not need to wear masks, that is your private vehicle.

“If you are in the car with your colleagues who you see every day, and you would know whether they have Covid-19, you would consider that a private vehicle, ” he said.

He said it was not compulsory to wear masks at places where there was ample room for social distancing, such as football fields.

“However, as we have said from the beginning, it is encouraged that masks are worn in whatever places, ” he said.

He added that it was also not compulsory for children under the age of two to wear masks, nor was it compulsory to wear masks when engaging in physical activities.
