Crown: Masks must in Guj, Haryana, Bengal

CHANDIGARH/AHMEDABAD: Haryana, Gujarat and Bengal on Sunday made wearing masks compulsory for all who retired. Several districts in Haryana, including Gurgaon and Faridabad, have already made mandatory masks for everyone in public. Haryana made the announcement a few days after Chandigarh and Punjab took the same step.

Haryana's home department said in her order that the breach would attract punishment and authorized police officers to calm criminals. Ordering masks does not mean that people have to buy masks in the markets. They can even wear a cloth, said Interior Minister Anil Vij.

The wearing of masks in public was also made compulsory in the main cities of Gujarat, including Ahmedabad, Surat, Rajkot and Vadodara.
