Naked sunbathing is allowed in the area, but the nudists were in violation of two other regulations currently in place throughout the Czech Republic to slow the spread of coronavirus : the mandatory requirement to wear a face mask in public spaces, and the obligation to not congregate in groups larger than two people. After being informed of the requirements, the nudists donned their face masks and agreed to abide by them. The following day, police ran a preliminary patrol of the area to ensure that the regulations were indeed being followed. After checking people in the area, police found no violations of the mandate not to congregate in groups larger than two. They did, however, need to remind about half of the park-goers of the requirement to wear a face mask while outdoors.

CNN Digital. Face masks aren't mandatory everywhere, but strict rules on wearing them have been enforced in the Czech Republic -- even for nudists. The European country has begun to relax restrictions imposed because of the coronavirus, but at the height of concerns late last month, police were called in to remind people that while it was OK to get naked in designated public places, mouths needed to be covered. The message seems to have been heeded. The statement said a subsequent police patrol found that of people encountered, only half needed reminding about masks. Full coverage at CTVNews.

Prague, Czech Republic — A group of Czech nudists were scolded by police officers for violating the obligation to wear protective face-masks in public spaces, local media reported. The message is clear: Protective face-masks have to be worn at all times in public, and no exception will be tolerated. Following reports that some nudists were sunbathing without protective face-masks by the Lazne Bohdanec spa resort area, in the Pardubice region, Czech police were called to the scene to reprimand the culprits. Although nude sunbathing is allowed in that area, the group of sunbathers violated two regulations introduced by the Czech government last month to prevent the spread of coronavirus: the ban on gatherings of more than two people, and the obligation to wear face-masks in public. According to further reports , local police officers ran a second patrol the following day in the area and found no other violations of the sort. Taking inspiration from the strict preventive measures introduced in east-Asian countries like South Korea and Taiwan, the Czech Republic was, along with neighbouring Slovakia, one of the first countries in Europe to make it mandatory for all residents to wear face-masks or equivalent like scarves , first when using public transport, before extending it to all public spaces.
