The bench noted, “Vehicle moving across public places may pose risk of exposure, whereas, a vehicle even if constituted by one person would constitute a public place.”

“The wearing of a mask face cover in a vehicle, which may be occupied by either a single person or multiple persons, is compulsory in the context of the Covid-19 pandemic,”

the court further observed.

The Delhi Government has imposed night curfew from 10 pm to 5 am till April 30 in view of the recent spike in Covid-19 cases in the National Capital Territory of Delhi.
