The list was given in an infographic posted on NSC's official Twitter account this morning.
Below are the locations where you must wear a face mask in public, to curb the spread of COVID-19:
- Mosques and surau
- Non-Muslim houses of worship
- Social events (weddings, birthday parties)
- Public transportation (taxies, e-hailing vehicles, buses, boats & ferries, trains and airplane.
- School bus/van
- Sports and recreational areas (must wear when not participating in activities)
- Health facilities, such as hospitals and clinics
- Live events
- Retail outlets (grocery shops, supermarkets, shopping malls, laundrette, restaurants, workshops, and petrol stations
- Barber shop and beauty salons
- Spas and reflexogy centres
- Family entertainment centres (karaoke etc)
However, there has been much confusion among the public on the guidelines of wearing the face masks, with some motorists even being fined by the police for not wearing face masks inside their own vehicles, while on the road.
The police have since cancelled the fines, and those who have paid can claim the payments back from the Health Ministry.
Malaysia so far has 9,002 confirmed COVID-19 cases and 125 deaths from the disease.
Globally, the virus has infected more than 18.6 million people and killed over 700,000.
