Face masks will not be mandatory in public catering facilities and during cultural and sporting events. Exceptions will also be applied to the services that cannot be provided while wearing a mask (such as beard trimming).

The changes will take effect on Saturday, 1 August, by the decision of the Minister of Health, State Commander of National Emergency Operations.

The new measures are part of the integrated decisions taken by the Government to manage the spread of the COVID-19 disease (the coronavirus infection). Residents are also invited to observe a safe distance, personal hygiene, and cough etiquette.
