The Interior Ministry has issued an appeal urging the public to use whatever protective gear they have against the coronavirus. People who have masks should wear them, especially when shopping or using public transport, and those who don’t should cover up with a shawl, wear glasses to protect their eyes and if possible make their own linen masks at home.
People in Prague will not be allowed on trams, busses and the metro without some form of protection – either a facemask or shawl to cover their nose and mouth. Other cities have issued similar instructions.
