Those caught breaking the new mask wearing rules - including not wearing masks properly as well as not at all - will get an on the spot fine of HUF 8,000, or must pay an admin fee of HUF 15,000 at a later date.
Venue owners can be fined HUF 50,000 for not adhering to the official rules.
Some good news for those without a face mask, BKK (Budapest's transport company) will distribute free masks at 5 key metro stations in the capital:
Deák Ferenc tér,
Széll Kálmán tér.
As readers may have noticed, due to the tighter control these days - plus the threat of fines - practically everyone is wearing a mask properly again on public transport around Budapest.
