by A.P.

Starting Thursday, Czechs will have to wear respirators or double face masks in heavily frequented places, Czech Minister of Health Jan Blatný announced.

People will have to wear them in shops, service establishments, on public transport, and at airports. They will also be mandatory in medical facilities where outpatient care is provided or in cars unless people in the vehicle are members of one household.

Children from two to 15 years of age do not have to wear a respirator, because according to Minister Blatný, children’s sizes are not available. However, they will have to wear a regular medical face mask.People must also wear a medical face mask in other

indoor areas or outdoors in the close vicinity to other people. Home-made face masks or scarves will only be allowed in these places until the end of February. After that, Czechs will have to switch to respirators or double-masking.
