Shopping Hours For Elderly Reintroduced In Hungary
A daily timeframe for shoppers older than 65 is being reintroduced from Tuesday with the aim of protecting the elderly from the coronavirus epidemic, according to the Government Information Centre.

Between 9am and 11am on weekdays and 8am and 10am on weekends, customers below that age are banned from shopping in grocery shops, household chemists and pharmacies, the centre said in a statement.

Senior citizens will have the right to shop at any time, according to the decree which was promulgated after agreement with the Council of the Elderly.

Senior citizens are asked to avoid crowded, enclosed spaces and, where possible, should ask their relatives or even the municipality to help with shopping, the statement said.
