A group of US stores and outlets have announced that customers are not allowed to wear masks that protect against the outbreak of the new Corona virus, to satisfy their desire for a "free" shopping experience, according to Sky News.

A series of stores put up signs banning customers from entering if they insist on wearing protective masks.

Those who oppose the closures and prevention measures imposed by many US states are considered an infringement of individual freedoms and a violation of personal rights.

Health experts, as well as the World Health Organization, recommend wearing masks, especially while in closed places such as shops, to stop the spread of the Corona virus, which has infected more than 5 million people around the world.
