Irakli Garibashvili: Uniform wearing of facemasks is no longer required Print Version


Uniform wearing of facemasks will no longer be required from today. It was announced by Irakli Garibashvili, Prime Minister of Georgia at the Executive Government Meeting today.

As noted by the Head of Government of Georgia, uniform use of facemasks will only be required at healthcare facilities and public transport.

"We had a discussion. Minister Azarashvili met with healthcare professionals, industry representatives and a decision will be made to make the uniform wearing of facemasks mandatory only at healthcare facilities and public transport. Thus, all other regulations will be waived from today, May 2. We have a very stable stance. Only 51 cases of viral infection have been reported today and the situation is peaceful in this regard. It enables us to further ease the regulations and thus uniform wearing of facemasks will be lifted from today, inter alia at schools as children are particularly concerned and not only them. Of course, we will monitor the trend and will act accordingly" noted Irakli Garibashvili, Prime Minister of Georgia.
