In Kazakhstan, Mask Mandate Reinstated for Hospitals and Public Spaces

Kazakhstan has reintroduced the mask mandate for hospitals and crowded areas, as declared by Aizhan Esmagambetova, the chief state sanitary doctor of the republic.

The Ministry of Health emphasized the necessity of wearing masks to prevent the transmission of measles, coronavirus, COVID-19, influenza, and other acute respiratory viral infections.

According to the minister’s decree, the heads of health departments across regions, as well as in the cities of Almaty, Astana, Shymkent, and territorial departments of the Committee for Sanitary and Epidemiological Control, are tasked with ensuring compliance with mask usage in medical facilities by both staff and visitors, along with the provision of adequate antiseptics.

Additionally, individuals are advised to wear masks in crowded venues such as airports, railway stations, bus terminals, markets, shopping malls, entertainment centers, and all forms of public transportation.
