That is because Romanian authorities no longer regard Hungary as a country of high risk. The National Committee for Emergency Situations published the updated list on Friday.
According to Csaba Borboly’s website, the committee no longer regards Hungary a yellow country. That means that people travelling to Romania from Hungary do not have to go into a 14-day-long quarantine.
The new rule is in effect from Saturday 8 pm.
Meanwhile, Romania still regards Spain, Italy, Germany, and France as countries of high risk, so people arriving from these countries are to be placed in a two-week-long quarantine. HERE you can read the full list.
- Did the peak of the second COVID-19-wave end in Hungary?
- Hungarians do not want to be vaccinated even though leading politicians try to persuade them
Furthermore, those who come to Romania, spend there less than three days, and can show a negative test which they did 48 hours before they crossed the border do not have to go into quarantine.
The 14-day-long quarantine may end on the eighth day with a negative COVID-19 test.
Those who caught the virus maximum 90 days before they arrived in Romania are also exempt from going into quarantine.
As we reported before, in Hungary, restrictions will stay in place until February 1, and secondary schools will continue digital education, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán said on Friday. A decree made commercial P+Rs, parking garages, and parking lots in residential areas free of charge from 7:00 in the evening until 7:00 in the morning. Soldiers are helping the police in carrying out their duties in public areas. Soldiers have also been assigned to help out the staff in 93 hospitals around Hungary.
The curfew is in force between 8 pm and 5 am,
and work carried out beyond the home must be justified. Except for pharmacies and petrol stations, shops can be open until 7 pm. Hairdressers, masseurs, and personal trainers must observe general curfew rules. Family and private events, including birthday celebrations, can be held with a maximum of ten people attending – children do not count in the headcount. A major new rule is that face masks must be worn in public spaces in places with more than 10,000 residents, though it is up to local mayors to decide which spaces the rule applies to.
Restaurants are limited to offering takeaways,
while hotels are not allowed to cater to tourists, only to guests arriving for business, economic, or educational purposes. Sports events must be held behind closed doors. Also, leisure facilities such as fitness gyms, indoor swimming pools, museums, libraries, cinemas, zoos, and skating rinks must suspend their services. Events, including cultural events, cannot be held under the special rules.
