Travellers are urged take appropriate precautions to prevent the infection of the virus where necessary such as general sanitisation and hand washing measures.  The wearing of face masks/coverings are no longer mandated by law, but are allowed as a matter of choice in public spaces, or as a policy of a business place or other establishment.
