Romania’s new restrictions for preventing and limiting COVID-19 infections came into force on Monday, October 25, 2021, at 00:00, being adopted by the Government.
Wearing a face mask has again become mandatory everywhere, in all public spaces. Private events are prohibited. Sports competitions are to be organized without spectators and the night quarantine is reintroduced in the country.
With the green certificate, an online document issued to those vaccinated or who can prove they have recovered from the disease or who have been tested and have a negative result, you can get rid of most of the restrictions imposed by the National Committee for Emergency Situations.
