• Even though some States have decided to stop penalising people for not wearing masks as COVID-19 cases continue to drop, healthcare experts are of the opinion that it is too early to completely do away with the restriction.
  • Advocating for unlocking but not unmasking, Dr. Kumar said, “I urge people to consider masking up on a voluntary basis when out and about to help the country fight COVID infection effectively.”
