Mask not mandatory, if driving alone

English NewsMask not mandatory, if driving alone

GUWAHATI: The Union health ministry has confirmed that it is not mandatory for a person driving a car and travelling alone to wear a mask.

The move comes in the wake of policemen stopping and prosecuting such drivers. Health secretary Rajesh Bhushan stated, “The guidelines issued by the health ministry do not contain any directive that a person driving a car alone is required to wear a mask. If you are exercising in a group, you need a mask. But there is no directive to wear one if you are cycling alone.”
