Most of Budapest’s districts have made wearing a mask in public spaces mandatory, but three districts chose to take a different route.
The local government of each settlement with a population of over 10,000 people can decide whether to make wearing a mask in public spaces mandatory and in which areas, according to the government’s latest decree from Tuesday, reported Telex.
20 of the districts of Budapest all chose the strictest measure: they made masks mandatory in all public spaces, except for green areas and parks. However, districts 4, 12, and 16 took another path.
Wearing a mask is mandatory in the 50-metre radius of all daycares/nurseries, kindergartens, schools, healthcare facilities, social institutions, the Újpest Market, on pedestrian crossings, in the 100-metre radius of subway stations, and on the promenade near the Óratorony (clock tower), as well as at playgrounds and dog parks.
In the heavily built-in area from Városmajor Street – Kék Golyó Street – Németvölgyi Way – Stromfeld Aurél – Jagelló Way to the River Danube, masks will be mandatory, except for in parks and green areas. In the less busy parts, masks will only be mandatory in bus stops and crowded spaces.
In the public spaces in front of daycares/nurseries, kindergartens, schools, social and healthcare facilities, doctor’s offices, pharmacies, grocery stores, tobacco shops, and churches/temples, and in the 15-metre radius from entrances, wearing a mask will be obligatory, as well as at playgrounds and dog parks and the parking lots of grocery stores.
Whoever pleases can, of course, wear a mask even where it is not mandatory.
