At a special session of Budapest’s City Assembly on Monday, councillors voted to tighten regulations on wearing masks in public spaces in Budapest.

Under the decision, wearing masks will be compulsory in cinemas, theatres, concerts, circuses and at similar indoor events, as well as during meetings of residents in apartment blocks.

If masks are not worn properly or at all, violators face an on-the-spot fine of up to 8,000 forints or an administrative fine of up to 15,000 forints (EUR 42).

Apart from the on-the-spot fines for visitors of venues, their owners may be fined up to 50,000 forints for any breaches of the rules.

The decision passed unanimously and is scheduled to come into force on Friday.
