Wear a mask in public
The government has decided to make it compulsory to wear a mask or cover your nose and mouth in indoor public spaces, which includes hospital premises.
The decision of the government of 23 November established the requirement to wear a mask or cover your nose and mouth in indoor public spaces, including on public transport and in places providing services. This requirement does not apply to children under the age of 12 or in cases where health reasons, special needs, work or activity or other important reasons make it impossible to wear a mask.
Indoor public spaces include any premises intended for public use and offering entry to all persons regardless of pre-registration requirements. Indoor public spaces are used by many people who do not have daily contact with one another.
The 2+2 rule must be adhered to in all indoor public spaces, meaning that up to 2 people may move together and must keep a 2-metre distance from other people.
Scientific studies conducted in recent months support the use of a mask as an additional measure against the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. The main conclusions made in such studies and the references used therein also form the basis of the guidance material issued by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control.
