From March 28th, Hungary will start a nationwide quarantine that will last for two weeks. It might last even longer, but at first, it is supposed to last for two weeks only.
The nationwide quarantine was announced by the Prime Minister in a radio speech this morning. People are still allowed to leave their homes to go to work, and also to buy groceries and medicines. You are also allowed to leave you home to take a walk, but you should only walk with a distance from others and it has to be because of your health.
People who disobey the regulations can be fined receive fines between 5.000 and 500.000 HUF (15-1500 Euro).
When can I go to the store?
One big change that will take place due to the quarantine is how the grocery stores and pharmacies will operate. Those who are 65 years or older can only visit stores between 9.00 and 12.00. Everyone below 65 years can only visit pharmacies and stores before 9.00 in the morning or after 12.00.
