According to the statement, adults accompanying children will be required to wear face masks or cover their mouths and noses with a scarf.

A requirement to similarly cover faces when using public transport and taxis, in shops and at markets in Budapest will stay in effect, the statement said.

Mayor Gergely Karácsony has announced that the lower embankment of the eastern side of the River Danube in central Budapest would be closed for cars at the weekend, to be used by pedestrians and cyclists only. The popular parks of Margaret and Óbuda islands will also be open, he said.
