Covid-19: rules explained

Under the emergency regulations for Covid-19, residents are required to wear a mask protecting the nose and mouth in situations where they cannot maintain social distancing of 6ft.

Wear a mask so it comes close to the bridge of the nose, and all the way down under the chin.

Exceptions are for people at home or with members of their household, people eating and drinking, and children aged under 2.

The mask requirement applies to all workplaces, public transport or taxis, and visiting any establishment, including outdoors, unless otherwise instructed.

It includes parks, streets and other public places where 6ft separation cannot be maintained.

To safely remove a used cloth face covering, do not touch the eyes, nose or mouth.

People should hands immediately after removal.

A washing machine should adequately clean a cloth face covering.

Cloth face coverings should be washed on a regular basis, depending on frequency of use.

The health department warned that children under 10 are less likely to wear masks correctly and should not be in situations where they are forced to wear masks all day at school or in daycare.
