Masks back in Delhi as must in public places, but not inside cars

The Delhi government has mandated citizens to wear face masks or face covers in all public places across the national capital. However, people travelling in a four-wheeler can avoid this rule, as the government notification has said. The step from the Delhi government comes in the light of rising Covid-19 cases in the national capital. The government notification also said that violators would be punished with a fine of 500 if they breach the rule.
