Under the amendments, anyone not wearing a face mask or failing to maintain distance in indoor or outdoor public spaces face fines of 5,000 dinars ($50.29), a hefty penalty in a country where the average monthly take-home pay is $570.
Companies, restaurants and shops that fail to comply with sanitary rules imposed by the government, including keeping distance between employees or customers or wearing of face masks, could face fines of 50,000-300,000 dinars.
The amended law also envisions that in case of a pandemic, the health ministry may introduce mandatory vaccination of the entire population or specific groups.
