Cambodia removes outdoor mask mandate amid high vaccination rates

Cambodian Prime Minister Samdech Techo Hun Sen on Tuesday lifted the mandate to wear masks outdoor after a vast majority of the South-East Asian country’s population were vaccinated against the Covid-19 pandemic.

“A mask mandate at all public places and open spaces across the country is lifted. However, masks in closed spaces remain mandatory,” he said in a special voice message, reported Xinhua.

People can make their own decisions to wear a mask or not at all outdoor places, but the requirement is still in place for air-conditioned indoor places such as meeting rooms and movie theatres, he said.
