Current restrictions on movement will remain in effect in Budapest and its surrounding areas, but will be replaced by new measures in places with fewer infections, PM Orbán has said.
It has also been announced that no events attracting more than 500 visitors can take place until 15 August. Therefore major summer festivals including Sziget, Ozora, Campus are affected.
In the countryside the stay-at-home order will be replaced by new measures including:
- Shops will have no limits on opening hours, and terraces & gardens of restaurants can open, as can open-air beaches and baths...
- But shops are still only allowed to admit customers older than 65 years between 9am and noon, and people need to keep 1.5 m distance from others, and wearing face masks in stores and on public transportation (as in Budapest) will now be compulsory nationwide.
