The current "stay-at-home" and shop opening restrictions will remain in force in Budapest and Pest County.

In the rest of the country, almost all public places will be opened and can be visited. However, in shops and on public transport, a face mask or a scarf covering the mouth and nose must be worn, said Lieutenant Colonel Róbert Kiss of the Hungarian Police Force.

Public adherence of the new rules will be monitored by the police, and, if necessary, action will be taken immediately if violations are detected, he added.
