In addition to the ban on visiting social institutions, the protection of cultural institutions has also been strengthened.

At their meeting, members of the Metropolitan Operational Tribunal consulted with Gyula Kincses, President of the Hungarian Medical Chamber, on measures to slow down the spread of the epidemic.

Based on these, it was decided that the Metropolitan Municipality would increase its own test capacity in its social institutions, including those for the homeless and the elderly, and order mandatory mask-wearing in markets, capital-maintained cultural institutions, museums, libraries, archives, cinemas, theaters, the Budapest Cultural Center and the enclosed rooms of the Budapest Zoo and Botanical Garden.
