Commerce ministry asks trade bodies to ensure face mask use



The commerce ministry has requested trade bodies to ensure the use of face masks to prevent the spread of coronavirus and weather its second wave in Bangladesh.

In a statement yesterday, the ministry said a circular has been issued by the Health Services Division making it mandatory to wear a mask to prevent the spread of the Covid-19.

In many cases, a lackadaisical attitude is being observed in the use of masks. Instructions in this regard have also been issued by the cabinet division.

In this context, the commerce ministry requested to take necessary measures to ensure the mask use for all officers and employees working in commercial organisations, institutions, affiliated associations, district and upazila chambers or joint chambers of commerce and industries, associations and foundations.

The ministry has issued instructions to the concerned institutions last week, the statement added.

After the cases of Covid-19 surged in several countries recently, Prime Minister Sheikh Hasina urged all to follow health guidelines and use face-masks in public places and gatherings last month.
