Masks must now also be worn at meetings where Plexiglas partitions are attached. The mask must also be worn for speaking. The rule applies from Monday.
It affects council members, magistrates and other meeting participants. Until now, masks could be removed during meetings if participants were separated by plexiglass walls.
