The governmentʼs official English-language coronavirus information website, abouthungary.hu, has reminded visitors that from tomorrow (Monday, April 27), people using public transport in Budapest will have to wear a face mask or cover their face with a scarf. Minors under the age of six are exempt.

The municipal regulations on masks will also apply to people shopping in Budapestʼs stores or markets, and those travelling in taxis.

The blanket obligation will not, however, apply to people who have a disease that prevents them from wearing a mask, and those who suffer from asthma or who have a hard time breathing.

In these challenging times, bbj.hu is committed to providing you with up-to-date and accurate information. We will post at least three coronavirus updates each day, including weekends and bank holidays, at 10 a.m., noon and 5 p.m., or as close to then as developing events allow. Breaking news and other stories will be added throughout the day Monday-through-Friday.
