Covid-19

Description of the measures taken to achieve “social distancing” (curfew, lockdown, mandatory shop closures, duration etc.) and how these measures are accepted by the public

The social distancing measures in Bulgaria include mandatory restaurants, bars, shops etc., except for supermarkets, glossaries, pharmacies as well as bank and insurance offices. Curfew is not announced generally but local authorities have announced curfew in certain cities /Currently Sofia is not under curfew regime/. Also there has been a general ban for visiting parks, gardens, playgrounds and sport areas for all the territory of Bulgaria. The only legitimate reasons for breaking the quarantine are going to supermarket or pharmacy / hospital, going home to your registered address or going to work. The measures have been currently set until 13th April 2020.

In our opinion, the measures have been accepted quite normally by the public and have been mostly observed so far.
