TravelComments.com – Coronavirus pandemic: Botswana makes mask-wearing in public compulsory!

The Government of Botswana has made it compulsory to wear masks/face coverings in public places, businesses and common areas of residential buildings from 01 May 2020. Classes of masks/coverings deemed acceptable are:

  • Medical masks – These are used primarily by health workers and persons working in high risk areas.
  • Non-Medical – cloth face mask or home-made item that covers the nose and mouth or another appropriate item that covers the nose and mouth when in a public place.

Due to the scarcity of medical masks, the Government of Botswana advises the public to buy or make their own non-medical masks, whilst medical masks be reserved for healthcare workers and persons working in high risk areas.
