Masks will become mandatory outdoors in Bulgaria from October 22nd. This was announced by the Minister of Health Prof. Kostadin Angelov. Many doctors and nurses have called for the return of this measure because of the high number of infected each day.
The order for wearing a protective mask or other means of covering the nose and mouth of all citizens of Bulgaria who are in indoor or outdoor public places is extended and remains mandatory until May 13th. The issuance of the new order is due the growing epidemic of COVlD-19 on the territory of Bulgaria and the increasing number of reported cases of coronavirus infection.
