To mask or not to mask
Under the current National Disaster Management Act regulations, a person must wear a cloth face mask or a homemade item that covers the nose and mouth when in a public place, or another appropriate item to cover the nose and mouth.
Under the Regulation of Gatherings Act, no person shall at any gathering or demonstration wear a disguise or mask or any other apparel or item which obscures his facial features and prevents his identification.
Collectively, “any gathering or demonstration” means just about any one or more individuals doing anything remotely “political” outside. Which stature will trump the other? One wonders how much attention the individuals responsible for the National Disaster Management Act regulations gave to this question. But we do not further deal with the lockdown in this issue.
