Hungary's government will require people to wear masks indoors in public spaces from Saturday, Gergely Gulyás, the head of the Prime Minister's Office, said at a weekly press briefing on Thursday.

Masks will be required in shops, museums, cinemas, and theaters, and at service providers where more than five people are present, Gulyás said. 

Decisions on whether to require masks in schools will be left up to headmasters, he added.

Booster shots will be made mandatory in the healthcare sector, he said.
