COVID-19 drove us into a new normal of having to wear masks covering both our nose and mouth in public areas. This new normal that is affecting the whole world has taken a strict path with the resurgence of a variant COVID-19 strain. In Bavaria, Germany cloth masks are not allowed on public transportation. Passengers are forced to wear FFP2 compliant face masks before boarding on public transportation.
Tony Winterburn wrote that, “Now Bavaria is tightening its regulations – a simple cloth mask is no longer sufficient, it must now be the more expensive and certified FFP2 mask.”
Most countries have mandatory regulations for face masks, but the trend of enforcing the use of a particular mask or to value certified products is taking root to ensure the safety of individuals.
