Tibor Lakatos said the ad hoc body is recommending the cancellation of events planned to mark the March 15 national holiday.
He said Hungarians returning from Italy should self-quarantine for a period of 14 days, even if they have no symptoms of infection.
He also asked people over the age of 60 to stay away from crowds.
