Public transport mask mandate lifted
The Central Epidemic Command Center (CECC) has lifted its public transport face mask mandate.
The move means that people are now not required to wear face masks on all forms of public transportation. However, the CECC is still advising people to wear face masks if they are elderly or immunocompromised, suffer from respiratory symptoms or have a fever or visit places that are crowded or poorly ventilated.
Face masks remain mandatory at medical and healthcare facilities, including pharmacies, senior welfare institutions, long-term care centers, and residential homes for people with disabilities.
The Ministry of Education says students are also no longer required to wear masks on school buses.
