Face masks compulsory in Malaysia’s crowded public spaces, transportation from Aug 1

KUALA LUMPUR: The wearing of face masks in crowded public spaces and on public transportation will be made compulsory starting Aug 1, said Malaysian Senior Minister Ismail Sabri Yaakob on Thursday (Jul 23).

Those not wearing masks may face a RM 1,000 (US$235) fine, he said during a media conference on developments concerning the Recovery Movement Control Order in Parliament. 

Mr Ismail Sabri said the decision was made after taking into account the emergence of new clusters. 

He said that for now, the ruling will only be enforced on public transportation such as Light RailTransit (LRT) and Mass Rapid Transit (MRT), and at crowded public spaces such as markets and farmers’ markets.
