The Emergency Situations Committee, led by prime minister Ludovic Orban, this week outlined a new set of rules aimed at limiting the spread of the coronavirus pandemic.

As such, wearing a mask becomes compulsory in crowded outdoor public venues, at certain hours. The venues and hours will be determined by the county committees for emergency situations, depending on the number of people present in a particular venue at a certain time.

The face mask is not compulsory for people undertaking strenuous physical activities, at high temperatures or high humidity levels. Children younger than five do not need to wear a mask.
