Spas and baths in Hungary are now receiving visitors in possession of a vaccination certificate, the chief medical officer said.
The spread of the virus is unlikely in such an environment, Cecília Müller said. The public health authority and the Hungarian Spa Association have set up a list of requirements to ensure the safety of patrons, Müller said. Besides technological, security, environmental and health-care requirements for reopening, the document also contains regulations on disinfection and cleaning, staffing, as well as on the chemical balance of the pool water, Müller said. Guests are asked to stay away if they experience fever or any sickness, and to use the showers before entering the pools. They should also keep a distance from each other “as far as that is possible”, Müller said.
