According to the information of index.hu, Hungarian football fans might return to the stadiums before the start of the EURO 2020, during which Budapest will be the only venue organising matches ‘full house’. Meanwhile, four Budapest spas opened to provide treatment.
Gergely Gulyás, Minister of the Prime Minister’s Office, said at the government info on Thursday that the government would decide about the further stages of reopening when the country reaches 3, 3.5, and 4 million inoculated people. Based on index.hu, fans might return to the stadiums in the 32nd round of the Hungarian Football League organised on May 1. It is not excluded that they will be able to take part in the matches even before, which
would mean next weekend (April 24-25).
However, Mr Gulyás added that fans would need an immunity certificate to enjoy the matches at the scene.
Meanwhile, telex.hu reported yesterday that four Budapest baths would open on April 19 to offer treatment for patients. These will be
the Paskál, and
the bath of Pesterzsébet.
According to the relevant government decree, pools have to remain closed, but all other facilities will open, including therapeutic massages or physiotherapy. However, because of the epidemic, the treatments can only be used following prior consultations.
The Budapest Gyógyfürdői és Hévízi Zrt. responsible for the operation of the baths
already inoculated their 200 employees in March
to make it easier to reopen. Furthermore, as Ildikó Szűts, CEO of the company, told telex.hu, they continue to sanitise, patients have to make an appointment, and they will probably test all their guests before they enter any of the facilities.
Baths had to close on November 11.
Yesterday, the operative body said that they prolonged
all border control measures until May 23,
hellomagyar.hu reported. That means that Hungarian citizens have to go into a 10-day-long quarantine after they arrive home. Meanwhile, foreign citizens cannot enter the country, except if they have to appear in court, study, receive medical treatment, or take part in family events (baptism, wedding, funeral) in Hungary. Furthermore, if they work in transportation, nurse their relatives, or attend international church events, they can likewise enter.
