Covid-19: Karnataka makes face masks compulsory; spitting in public to attract fine

The order noted that Covid-19 restrictions in the state have been absent since February 28, when these were lifted due to low daily infections.

With Covid-19 cases on the rise in several states, and state governments reintroducing curbs, including wearing of masks, the Karnataka government, too, on Monday, made face masks compulsory in public areas, while also making spitting in such places a punishable offence.

“In the wake of uptick in Covid-19 cases in other states, wearing mask has been made mandatory in public places, work places and while traveling on public transport. I urge all eligible to get precaution dose and stay vigilant by adhering to Covid appropriate behaviour,” state health minister Dr Sudhakar K said in a tweet, sharing the government order.
