The Zimbabwean government has scrapped the mandatory wearing of face masks for fully vaccinated people in outdoor public places.
In a Post Cabinet Briefing on Tuesday, Information Minister Honourable Senator Monica Mutsvangwa said the decision comes after a notable decrease in Covid-19 cases.
She, however, said the wearing of face masks is still required indoors.
Minister Mutsvangwa said those fully vaccinated should always carry their vaccinations cards.
“Noting the decrease in Covid-19 cases Cabinet resolved as follows:
-That those who have received three doses of the WHO recommended vaccines are exempted from mandatory wearing of face masks in outdoor public places but should however wear masks in indoor
public places and on public transport. Those fully vaccinated should carry their cards all the time.
“-That all Provinces continue intensifying Covid-19 Vaccination activities for the nation to achieve herd immunity,” announced the Ministry of Information, Publicity and Broadcasting Services on Twitter.
