Bahrain police urge public to wear face masks

Bahrain’s Ministry of Interior has urged the public to continue wearing face masks when leaving the home or face legal action.

Wearing face masks in public has been compulsory in Bahrain since April 8, and to date the Southern Governorate has recorded 282 violations.

If you cannot buy a face mask, Bahrain’s Ministry of Health has released a handy guide on how to make your own here. There are three different options, one of which requires only a pair of scissors and an old t-shirt.

The reminder comes after the government urged citizens and residents to stay at home where possible despite restriction relaxations.

The Ministry of Health has stressed the importance of “not reverting to normal social behaviour during the resumption of usual operations at commercial and industrial businesses”.
