Outdoors public events of over 500 people and indoors public events of over 100 people will be banned from tomorrow (12th of March, 2020). The decree remains in effect for fifteen days unless Parliament authorises the government to extend it.
Hungary declared a state of emergency in the entire country due to the coronavirus, to avoid community spread of the disease. The special legal order allows the government to halt air traffic or public transportation, order quarantines in certain areas and restrict usage of public spaces. Outdoors public events of over 500 people and indoors public events of over 100 people will be banned - this does not apply to workplaces and malls, but does apply to cinemas, clubs, concert halls, theatres and some museums. Cinema City movie theaters in shopping malls remain open, but they do restrict the number of attendees per screening. Football games will be played behind closed gates. As for ticket refunds, please contact the organizers of the cancelled event.
