Recommendations and Regulations
Obligation to cover your mouth and nose – especially with a face mask, a respirator or a scarf - needs to be followed within any urban areas of cities, towns and villages still applies.
This means between buildings, shops, in squares, and everywhere where people can be met. You do not need to wear a face covering e.g. when walking in the nature outside the city, town or village, or when alone away from other people.
Within the obligation of wearing a face mask in urban areas, there are some exemptions. The face covering does not need to be worn by children under the age of 3 or while being with people who live in the same household. This exemption also includes people who cannot wear a face covering because of a serious mental illness or intellectual impairment. It is not mandatory to wear a face covering in outside areas if a safe distance of at least 2m away from other people can be kept, however as a preventive measure we recommend wearing a face covering in any public areas. The face covering does not need to be worn while exercising e.g. while running, riding a bicycle or playground exercising.
A face mask is very effective protection that helps to prevent the spreading of viral illnesses. Even though the number of infected persons is getting lower, we recommend wearing your face covering while being outside your house. By doing this, you will protect yourself and others.
