Peru is now mandating that people wear two face masks in places where crowding is possible like commercial buildings.
The regulation, aimed at slowing a deadly second wave of the virus, began Monday, and was first reported in Peru's national newspaper, El Peruano.
The paper said a Supreme Decree (#083-2021-PCM) also mandates double masking in malls, grocery stores, shopping arcades, markets and warehouses.
