Hygienists have specified that the conditions for operating the outdoor terraces in restaurants, cafés and similar facilities where foods and drinks are served will change.
The new regulation, published by the Public Health Authority (ÚVZ), stipulates that an outdoor terrace needs to have an open entrance, and the space needs to be bordered by short- or long-term constructions from no more than three sides, the TASR newswire reported.
The regulation comes into force on Friday, November 27.
New details for mass events
The regulation also specifies the definition for mass events with more than six participants.
They should be non-recurring and should last 48 hours maximum.
Moreover, their participants need to have a negative PCR or antigen test result no older than 12 hours when the event starts.
