So far, six ministers have accompanied the rapporteur in a vote that keeps down the veto imposed by Bolsonaro on the use of masks in temples and establishments
THE Federal Supreme Court (STF) formed on Friday, 12, a majority of votes in favor of maintaining the mandatory use of masks to protect against Covid-19 in public areas of the country. The action, whose rapporteur is the minister Gilmar Mendes, overturns a veto made by President Jair Bolsonaro in August in which he made the use of protection optional in “commercial and industrial establishments, religious temples, educational establishments and other closed places where people gather”. In the document, the minister points out the need for “mandatory use of an individual protection mask for circulation in all private spaces accessible to the public, especially commercial, industrial and educational establishments, religious temples and other closed places”. So far, the vote of the rapporteur Gilmar Mendes followed the ministers Alexandre de Moraes, Marco Aurélio, Cármen Lúcia, Rosa Weber, Dias Toffoli and Edson Fachin.
