“Mask wearing indoors is a compulsory measure after August 1. Our structures are still enforcing day by day sanctions for failure to observe the sanitary protection measures.

We are looking with concern at what is going on in other states in Europe, we are looking at the measures they have taken. We are in the stage where we have gradually relaxed part of the measures, as we had introduced them,” Bode said.
