The Government of São Paulo announced the mandatory return of the use of masks on public transport, in publication in the Official Gazette of November 25, 2022. The objective of the measure is to contain the new increase in cases of covid-19.

Thus, on November 26, the mandatory use of masks, as regulated by Article 1 of the Decree 66,575, of 17 March 2022.

It occurs that, although the government has announced the return of the measure only on public transport, the Decree 67,299, of 24/11/2022, determines the mandatory use of masks in transport passenger collectives, not distinguishing whether the medium is public or private.

Given the uncertainty, it is recommended that companies again require the use of masks in chartered means of transport, as well as in places of access, embarkation and disembarkation, from November 26, 2022.
