Covid-19: Face masks obligatory from 1st day of Eid al-Fitr

ALGIERS- The government has made face masks "obligatory" in public spaces from the first day of Eid al-Fitr, to better control the spread of the Coronavirus (Covid-19) during this very favourable period for gatherings.

 "Wearing of face masks is obligatory, and violating this mandatory obligation would expose offenders to legal sanctions," said the government during its last meeting.

The masques will be available on a "large scale" and their distribution will be ensured through civil society structures, committees, and associations, according to the government.

The government "counts a lot on the vigilance, awareness, and solidarity of citizens to fight the spread of the Coronavirus pandemic."
