In view of the fact that the number of new cases of COVID-19 in our country remained stable, the decision was confirmed that from Wednesday, July 1, everyone who took the doses all of the vaccine and 14 days have elapsed since the last dose and is in possession of the vaccine certificate, will be able to remain without a mask in open public places. This is unless more than two vaccinated people are together.

Children under the age of 12 may remain unmasked as long as they are accompanied by a person vaccinated against COVID-19.
