It’s not against the law to not be wearing a mask in public during the nationwide Movement Control Order (MCO).
According to Senior Minister (Defence) Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob itâ€™s up to the rakyat to assess and decide their own needs to wear personal protective gear (PPE), such as face masks and gloves when they are venturing out in public spaces during the lockdown.
This is synonymous with whatâ€™s been repeatedly advocated by the Malaysian Health Ministry (MOH), where individuals should only wear a mask when they are sick and showing symptoms of illnesses, or dealing with infected or potentially infected people.
Itâ€™s hoped that the confusion and frustration among the public regarding the use of masks can be addressed for good and that the public should be made aware that no one has the authority to stop you out in public if youâ€™re not wearing a mask.
Each Malaysian household is expected to receive a total of 4 masks each, and authorities said that mask would only be given to those who present flu-like symptoms and are visibly ill.
