The committee proposed canceling the mandatory wearing of protective facial masks in closed areas, Jo24 said, quoting Health adviser to the Prime Minister, Adel Bilbisi.

The government, however, wanted to keep mask-wearing mandatory in closed areas, but make it optional outdoors, according to Jo24.

Shboul said recommendations must undergo certain legal steps before the prime ministry approves them. He pointed out that some recommendations must align with amendments on a certain defense order, while others need to have a new defense order.

The minister stressed that the Legislation and Opinion Bureau is the responsible authority for approving such recommendations.
