More Covid-19 restrictions have been lifted: View the current state of things here
It almost feels like Christmas Eve when Covid-19 restrictions are lifted, and we are step by step approaching a more normal everyday life.
If you’re at a point where you’ve lost an overview of what restrictions have gone, we can help.
No more face masks on public transportation
As of last Saturday (August 14), you no longer need to wear face masks on public transportation.
The restriction originally applied to standing passengers as well as when entering and leaving busses, trains, metros, and ferries and was supposed to last until September 1.
But seeing as the requirement pertaining to social distancing has been lifted there was broad agreement to also repeal the face mask requirements.
Keep in mind that you still need to use face masks when flying since airfare is subjected to common international guidelines.
Social distancing requirement in businesses is lifted
Another change is that there is no longer any requirement of social distancing in businesses. However, organizers that are readjusting to the new reality will be compensated.
Specifically, the rules of social distancing are lifted for:
- Supermarkets, shopping malls, etc.
- Amusement parks
- Water parks
- Conference halls
- Agricultural shows
- Trade fairs
- Hairdressers, therapists, and other liberal businesses
