Wearing mask mandatory even if you are alone in car and driving

Ahmedabad: You will need to wear face mask properly while in car even if you are yourself driving a car and there’s none other in the same car. As per an order, copy of which is attached to this article, it is mandatory to wear mask when in rickshaw, cab, taxi, private or government car for all passengers and a person on driving seat. Even when a person is alone in vehicle and on driving seat, he/she will need to wear a face mask properly mandatorily or will have to pay Rs. 1,000 fine per person when caught by police for violation. It’s worth noting that earlier, the State government had exempted single persons in vehicle (on driving seat) from wearing mask.
