Under the new coronavirus law, face masks are required in shops, libraries, cinemas, restaurants, secondary schools, and universities, among others. However, you’re allowed to remove your mask once you’re seated. 

Both customers and staff of hair and beauty salons and other contact-based services have to wear a mask during appointments, as do driving instructors and their pupils. 

Wearing a mask on public transport has been mandatory for a few months already, but now you also have to be masked in train stations, airports, and at bus and tram stops. 

There are several exemptions to the face mask rule, though. A mask is not required if you’re unable to wear one for medical reasons. You’re also not required to wear a mask during workouts or musical and other cultural performances, or in places of worship.
