Most Hungarian dioceses outside of Budapest are resuming church services with precautions in place, in line with the official easing of restrictions in provincial areas.

Worshippers are being asked to strictly observe rules such as physical distancing and mask-wearing. Disinfectants are being placed at the entrance of churches. It is up to the discretion of local bishops to advise people above the age of 65 to stay away from church services.

The dioceses of Esztergom-Budapest and Székesfehérvár as well as the Pest county part of the diocese of Vác have decided to stick to lockdown rules, given the relatively high number of coronavirus infections in these areas.

A call center set up for advice on the coronavirus can be reached on +36-80-277-455 and +36-80-277-456 or by email koronavirus@bm.gov.hu
