From 1 June, public transport will return to the full timetable, but that does not mean that you can simply travel by public transport again as you are used to. A maximum of forty percent of the seats are used, and in addition, public transport after 1 June is still intended for essential trips.
If you have to travel by public transport after 1 June, a non-medical mask is therefore mandatory. If you don’t, you can be fined.
