In the exterior in all districts, there is a mandatory airway cover with a drape, respirator, scarf or shawl.
From Thursday, the obligation to have the upper airways covered at least with a drape for primary school pupils (primary), special primary schools and pupils of the first four years of secondary schools with an eight-year educational program is introduced. This follows from the decree of the Public Health Office (ÚVZ) SR.
From Thursday, interiors, including public transport and taxis, are required to cover the nose and mouth with a respirator in all districts. Outdoors in all districts, there is a mandatory airway cover with a drape, respirator, scarf or shawl if you are less than two meters away from strangers. The upper airways must also be covered at all mass events, both indoors and outdoors.
Exceptions to the upper airway cover, which are detailed in the decree, also apply. A stricter upper airway coverage regime, whether in lower grades or in general indoor and outdoor rules, is part of a package of tougher measures, with the potential to slow the community-based spread of COVID-19 in various spheres of everyday life.
