Police have started enforcing the face covering law days after the government made its mandatory to wear face masks in public in a bid to curb the spread of coronavirus.

Violators could be fined for not wearing face masks in public places.

“The Covid-19 security task forces all over the country will be conducting constant patrol and monitoring to ensure compliance with the mandatory facemask wearing regulations,” police said in a statement.

“The public is hereby urged to cooperate and support the security in preventing and controlling the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic in the Gambia.”
