1.0 MANDATORY WEARING OF MASKS IN PUBLIC PLACES

The Zambia Compulsory Standards Agency wishes to advise members of the public that need to access its services to use the available electronic platforms rather than physical visits to its premises. This is in a bid to curb the spread of COVID-19 through social distancing.

However, where it is necessary to come to our premises physically, we wish to remind our esteemed clients to ALWAYS wear a mask.

This follows the directive by the Government of the Republic of Zambia for everyone to wear a mask always when in public to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 disease.

Please stay home and stay safe!
