Bengaluru, March 31 : Everybody is not required to wear a mask in Karnataka, amidst the COVID-19 contagion, a top official said on Tuesday.

"As a rule, everyone need not wear a mask," said Health and Family Welfare Services Commissioner Pankaj Kumar Pandey in a statement.

Pandey listed four categories of people who are required to wear a mask. They include people with symptoms of cold, cough, fever and respiratory problems.

Those people caring for a Covid suspect or patient and health workers attending to patients with respiratory symptoms.
