Romania plans to lift some more restrictions on June 15, health minister Nelu Tataru told the national television TVR.
Malls could be allowed to open, but in several steps – firstly the stores, then the food courts and lastly the playgrounds. Also, private kindergartens and after-schools could be allowed to operate during the summer.
Romania eased restrictions on 15 May, when the state of emergency ended, and another round of restrictions were lifted on Monday (1 June).
The minister said the COVID-19 epidemic is on a decreasing slope. Since the debut of the pandemic, Romania registered some 19,500 COVID-19 cases, and 1,288 deaths.
