PEOPLE IN ISRAEL no longer have to wear face masks outdoors from today as the country’s coronavirus infections continue to plummet.

The HSE’s Chief Clinical Officer, Dr Colm Henry, has previously said that transmission of Covid-19 outdoors is 19 to 20 times less likely than in indoor settings.

The wearing of face coverings is mandatory in several indoor public settings, and they are recommended in busy or crowded outdoor spaces where there is a significant congregation of people. 

So today we’re asking: Do you wear a face covering in busy outdoor places?


Poll Results:

Yes, always  (9317)
No (5889)
Sometimes (4438)
