It went on to say that all employees and workers whose jobs need them to be in confined spaces and communicate with clients must wear masks during their shifts.

This will go into effect tomorrow, September 1, 2022.

According to a Cabinet decision, kids, teachers, and administrators in all kindergartens, as well as public and private schools, are no longer needed to wear masks inside the campus/classrooms.
