While Bhutan completes the second phase of unlocking tomorrow Health Minister Dechen Wangmo cautioned that if Bhutanese don’t adhere to the safety protocols there could be a lockdown any time.

She said residents must wear facemasks while going out and to wear them properly.

“Don’t wear facemasks just for the sake of wearing or because the government has asked you to wear it,” Lyonpo said. “There’re dos and don’ts while putting on facemasks and wearing it on the chin or hanging from one’s ear is definitely not one of them.”

Lyonpo added that wearing facemasks, washing hands and maintaining social distance is the new normal and that people must accept given uncertainty of Covid-19 virus.
