“Face masks are mandatory for people in Tajikistan who go out in public during the coronavirus pandemic, but not all observe this decision of the Republican Commission for Preventing Further Spread of COVID-19 in Tajikistan,” a source within the Majlisi Namoyandagon told Asia-Plus in an interview.

 

“Therefore, MPs are currently exploring the issue of the possibility of imposing a fine for going out in public without a face mask,” the source added.

 

According to him, Majlisi Namoyandagon members also propose to tighten requirements of the country’s administrative code concerning sanitary-hygienic and sanitary-epidemiological rules and norms.

 

Current size of a fine for violation of these rules and norms reportedly ranges from 174.00 to 406.00 somoni.

 

Although quarantine has not been officially declared in Tajikistan, the Republican Commission for Preventing Further Spread of COVID-19 in Tajikistan has decided that face masks are mandatory for people in Tajikistan who go out in public during the coronavirus pandemic.
