Failure to comply could land you a 95 euro fine- and the shame of knowing you’re selfishly helping the Coronavirus spread
To reduce the spread of the Coronavirus, an obligation to wear a face mask will apply in all public indoor areas for everyone aged 13 and older from Tuesday 1 December. Anyone that does not wear a face mask can be fined 95 euros.
‘Public spaces’ include shops, museums, theaters and cinemas. Masks must also be work when attending appointments at so-called ‘contact professions’, such as hairdressers, nail salons and driving schools. Masks must be worn by both employees and customers.
A face mask was already mandatory on public transport, and now at stations and bus stops will be added to that. Face masks are also compulsory in schools, with the exception of primary education. In education, the mask may be removed once a student has taken their seat. A mask is not necessary for gymnastics, dance, singing; theater and forms of practical education.
For theaters, cinemas and restaurants, the mask may be removed once a seat has been taken.
