Coronavirus India: In Chandigarh, Wearing Masks At Public Places Is Mandatory
The Chandigarh administration on Tuesday made it mandatory for people to wear masks in public places to check the spread of the novel coronavirus.
"We have made it mandatory for people in Chandigarh to wear masks or cloth on their face from Wednesday," the Union Territory of Chandigarh Adviser Manoj Parida said.
He said anybody flouting the order will be warned by the police. However, the decision regarding levying penalty on violators is yet to be taken, Mr Parida said.
He said Chandigarh will be the first Union Territory (UT) which has made wearing masks mandatory.
