The government has approved the gradual easing of COVID-19 restrictions, allowing group recreational activities and education, youth work, continuing education and training indoors from Monday 31 May. Dispersion and all other safety measures must still be borne in mind.
Recreational activities and education, youth work, further education and training
All of these activities will be permitted indoors for groups of up to 200 people from 31 May and for groups of up to 600 people from 14 June. The occupancy rate must not exceed 50% and dispersion must be ensured.
Masks must be worn indoors. Masks are not mandatory for children under 12 years of age or those who cannot wear a mask for health reasons, if it is impossible to do so due to the nature of an activity or for other valid reasons.
For outdoor activities, the maximum number of participants is 250 from 31 May and 1000 from 14 June.
The requirement to wear a mask currently applies to both indoor public spaces and educational and youth facilities. The government will discuss replacing the requirement to wear a mask in crowded places with a strong recommendation to do so in two weeks’ time at the latest. In making its decision, the government will assess the impact of the alleviated restrictions on the spread of coronavirus, the state of hospitals and other critical COVID-19 indicators, as well as the proportion of the population vaccinated.
