Govt says no need for mask if you are in car alone

The Union health ministry has clarified that it is not mandatory for a single person driving a car to wear a mask. Health secretary Rajesh Bhushan said, “The guidelines issued by the health ministry do not contain any directive that a person driving a car alone is required to wear a mask. If you are exercising in a group, you need a mask. But there is no directive to wear one if you are cycling alone.”
A senior officer clarified, “According to a Supreme Court order, a person travelling in a car is considered to be in a public place. Therefore, we have been issuing challans.”
