Budapest Spa Baths Can Reopen In Mid-March For Medical Purposes
Budapest baths can reopen on March 16, after city-owned spa operator 'Budapest Gyógyfürdői és Hévízei' had its 200+ staff members vaccinated on February 19.

This was possible because all staff members of the company are classed as healthcare workers.

CEO Ildikó Szűts told Telex that the company will reduce the risk of infections by making appointments mandatory, continuing to disinfect the facilities and following the Austrian example of requiring all arriving guests to undergo coronavirus tests.

The spas had to close after Prime Minister Viktor Orbán announced stricter lockdown measures on November 11. According to the plans the medical units in the spas may open from 16 March so that “treatments permitted by the regulation” can be used again.
