Facemask requirement now dropped in most parts of country

From Wednesday, people in most parts of the Czech Republic do not have to wear facemasks on public transport or inside public buildings, in the latest easing of coronavirus restrictions. There are exceptions in the Moravian-Silesian Region and in Prague, where it is still compulsory to cover one’s mouth and nose in some places.

In addition bars and restaurants in most parts of the country are now allowed to open past 11 pm. Consuming food is once again permitted in cinema halls.
