Since April 7, Hungary’s government has relaxed some of the measures placed into existance before March 8th, and also included some new ones:
Lieutenant Colonel Róbert Kiss told an online press briefing that the current rules applying to mask-wearing, gatherings, the hospitality sector, recreation centres, schools and the Schengen borders will remain in effect for the next week and a half and newer decisions are expected on April 19th.
Police have taken action in 50,429 cases due to people neglecting to wear masks or wearing them incorrectly since the government decree on stricter coronavirus-related defence measures entered into force on Sept. 21.
