Mask-wearing is a state order in Bangladesh: Cabinet


A cabinet meeting with Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina in the chair here today directed all public and private institutions, haat-bazars (markets), mosques and other places of worship to make mask-wearing compulsory.

“Mask-wearing is a state order… No mask, no service,” cabinet secretary Khandaker Anwarul Islam told a news briefing at the cabinet division of Bangladesh Secretariat here this afternoon.

He said people of all public and private offices, social institutions, haat-bazars, shopping malls, other establishments, educational institutions, mosques or other places of worship throughout the country must use masks in view of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
