Prymula: Face masks to remain mandatory in the Czech Republic until end of June

Certain measures against the coronavirus spread will remain in effect in the Czech Republic until the end of June, estimates the Deputy Health Minister

Prague, April 24 (CTK) – Certain measures against the coronavirus spread, such as people keeping at a distance from each other and wearing face masks, will remain in effect in Czechia until the end of June at least, Deputy Health Minister Roman Prymula said on Czech Television (CT) today.

These measures will prevent a faster reopening of schools, because schools, too, have to secure the observance of these rules, he said.

The cabinet on Thursday decided on a further softening of its package of anti-virus measures on condition that three rules are observed: at least a two-meter distance between people except for members of one family, the wearing of face masks and the use of disinfectants.

“These are the basic three parameters…I think they will remain in effect until the end of June at least,” Prymula said.

If these rules are observed, the package of anti-virus measures that dramatically damages the economy may be lifted by the government step by step, he said.

In an interview with Radio Z, Prymula also said that nothing is changing about people’s compulsory face mask wearing, but added that the obligation may be relaxed sooner “in summer conditions,” unlike indoor premises, public transport, etc.
