Wearing facemasks outdoors becomes mandatory

Wearing facemasks outdoors will be mandatory starting Thursday, 22 October. The announcement came from Minister of Healthcare Prof. Kostadin Angelov.

He believes that, if followed strictly, the measure will contribute to a 30% decrease in the number of coronavirus infections. The facemask mandate is set to remain in place until the end of November. If the rate of infections drops, changes to it will be made. However, there is no plan for nightclubs to be closed as of yet.

Starting 22 October, the quarantine period is being reduced from 14 to 10 days.

A National Logistics Center is being set up in Sofia, which will function as a 24/7 call center, with the country being divided into six different areas. The center will perform active logistics operations so that time is managed more effectively.
