Namibia Relaxes COVID-19 Restrictions

Namibia has revoked the requirement to wear a mask in public places due to a reduction in the number of COVID-19 positive cases.

The Namibian president, Hage Geingob, also announced that the number of public gatherings will increase from 500 to 1,000 at the 41st COVID-19 briefing on Tuesday. 

He said, “Wearing masks in public places is no longer mandatory. However, people who are in close settings, such as public transport, indoor public meetings are encouraged to wear masks. A physical distance of no less than 1 meter must be maintained between persons at all times.”

There will be an increase in public gatherings from 500 to 1000 people. The regulation will apply to all social gatherings as defined in the regulations, such as weddings, funerals, and church services.

The new regulations enter into force at midnight for a period of 30 days until April 15.
