Mandatory respirator or two drapes. The government has been tightening measures since Tuesday

On Monday, the Ministry of Health will order the wearing of respirators, a nanostuff or two surgical drapes in places where there is a higher concentration of people. According to the Minister of Health Jan Blatný (for YES), these will be shops, public transport, hospitals and other places that will be listed in the extraordinary measure. He said this at today’s press conference after an extraordinary government meeting. The measure will apply from midnight from Monday to Tuesday.

“It will not be possible to consider various self-made fabrics as sufficient protection,” the minister said. He advised people to prefer respirators of at least KN95 or FFP2. According to him, the reason is a worse epidemic situation with the spread of the British mutation.

According to Blatný, respirators are available on the market and regulation of their price will not be considered yet. At the beginning of February, the government abolished FFP2 class respirators and higher value-added tax for two months, and traders could then reduce their price. “If there is a reduction in availability, we will continue to address this with the relevant ministries in charge,” the minister added.

The chief hygienist has previously specified methodological instructions for granting quarantines, which also do not consider the wearing of a scarf, shawl or home-made veil to be sufficient protection.
