Masks at Hong Kong Protests – level 2
Hong Kong is under pressure over the last four months. Protesters, who are in favor of democracy and are against the current government, wear masks to protect their identities. The Hong Kong government used the colonial-era Emergency Regulations Ordinance to stop the use of face masks. If protesters do not respect the law they can get a fine, and they can be sent to prison for a year. A police officer can ask a person to remove the mask. If the person refuses, he can pay a fine, and he could be sent to prison for six months.
The government said some people can use masks for medical, professional, or religious use.
