Wearing Face Mask in Public is Now Mandatory

The state of emergency is entering a two-month extension, but with relaxed regulations and the public will be able to move a bit more freely. While that is the case, the government is adamant that no one should let their guard down as a second wave of COVID-19 is still possible.  It is now law that anyone who leaves his or her house is required to wear a face mask. Failure to do so will be awarded with a hefty fine. In today’s Ask the Experts, Attorney General Michael Peyrefitte expanded on the use of face masks.

“If I say nothing else I say this, for the next two months everybody who is in public, everybody who, if you leave your house you must left your house with a mask on. You will not be allowed to be on the streets or walk in any approve business if you don’t have a mask on. So if you don’t have a mask on and you are on the streets you will be committing an offence. Ladies and gentlemen because we are freeing up it a little bit more it now a requirement for every soul in this country when you leave your house you must wear a mask.”
