The 19th round of the government’s facemask purchase scheme will start today. The facemasks sold under the scheme are colloquially known as “government facemasks”.

Under the facemask purchase scheme, which was launched by the government on 23 January, each local resident and non-resident worker is entitled to buy 10 facemasks at the fixed price of MOP 8 (US$1) every 10 days at designated outlets upon presentation of their original Macao ID card or work permit (informally known as a “blue card”).

In each round, which lasts 10 days, parents or legal guardians are entitled to buy 10 facemasks for each child aged between five and eight, and five facemasks for each kid aged between three and four.
