Authorities are cancelling the fines issued to individuals who were not wearing a face mask in private in vehicles according to Senior Minister Datuk Seri Ismail Sabri Yaakob.

He said those who have paid the fines to the Ministry of Health (MOH) can claim back their payments.

I already spoke to the police and the MOH, and the police will cancel the fines. If they already paid to MOH, they can claim back the payment from MOH.

He also said that the wearing of masks is not compulsory while carrying out physical activities and for children below 2 years old.

The rule to wear a mask at public and crowded areas was enforced on 1 August after an increase in Covid-19 infections and people generally becoming more relaxed on the standard operating procedures.

This angered some Malaysians who questioned the vagueness of the rule, with many urging the government to draw out clear guidelines.
