Bikers & Face-mask Use

SPN Full Face HelmetThere’s some confusion over if you have to wear a mask when riding a motorbike or scooter. The answer depends on the type of helmet and if accompanied or not.

A) If you’re riding by yourself, you don’t have to wear a mask regardless of the type of helmet.

B) If you use a full-face helmet then you don’t have to wear a mask, even if accompanied

C) If you have a passenger who lives under the same roof, then neither has to wear a mask, regardless of the type of helmet.

SPN Open Face HelmetD) If both people on the bike are wearing full-face helmets, they don’t need to wear a mask, even if they don’t live together

E) If there are two on the bike and one is wearing an open helmet and they don’t live together, that person has to wear a mask.

The logic behind it: a full-face helmet is equivalent to wearing a mask, hence you don’t need to wear one by yourself or accompanied. Open-front helmets are not considered equivalent to wearing a mask, which is no problem if you’re riding alone, but when there is a passenger then normal mask use if obligatory.
