The Cabinet has also agreed that the regulations governing the wearing of face masks is to be repealed, making the wearing of masks optional effective Wednesday 16 March, 2022.
The CMO and her team propose that face masks be worn by workers indoors (office, stores, supermarkets, financial institutions, churches, civic groups, schools, bars, clubs) where workers come into contact with many strangers.
In outdoor places also, where there is likely to be crowds of people, the wearing of a face mask is dutifully encouraged.
