The expected day has come: Mask obligation in public transportations has been lifted in Turkey.
Health Minister Fahrettin Koca announced an important decision regarding the obligation to wear the mask on his social media account.
So, is the obligation to wear a mask lifted in Turkey? Is the mask ban in public transport and hospitals over?
Turkey is counting the days to get rid of the coronavirus epidemic, which has negatively affected all areas of life for two years.
The Ministry of Health announced that 2 people died in the last 24 hours, and 864 people were diagnosed with Covid-19.
Thus, the number of cases remained below 1000 for three days in a row, and the obligation to wear masks in public transportation is lifted in Turkey.
The measures taken against the Covid-19 were gradually reduced with the acceleration of vaccination studies.
However, despite the decrease in the number of cases, the obligation to wear masks in hospitals will continue.
Minister Koca continued his statement, "The mask is no longer compulsory, except for hospitals. But after all this experience, we can take our masks with us for crowded indoor areas, especially public transportation vehicles."
