According to the National Operational Plan of the Republic of Bulgaria to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic, adopted by the Council of Ministers on July 14, 2022, for the areas falling into stage two, in addition to the measures introduced in stage one, wearing a protective face mask is foreseen in medical and health facilities, in facilities for the provision of social services, public transport and other facilities where the risk of infection is high; keeping a physical distance of at least one and a half meters; hand hygiene and surface disinfection; regular ventilation; working remotely, if possible, as well as wearing a protective mask indoors in public, commercial or other facilities that provide services to citizens and during various educational, sports, scientific and cultural activities and events related to crowding of people.

Other mandatory measures for areas falling into stage two are the introduction of a requirement not to allow more than one person per eight square meters in commercial establishments, limiting visits to medical facilities and specialized institutions for the provision of social services, as well as in residential-type social services for children and adults. Only visits are allowed for patients with a hospital stay of more than five days - at the discretion of the attending physician and according to the patient's state of health and the risk of infection with COVID-19; limitation of extracurricular activities and gatherings of children and youth. Stage two provides for other mandatory measures relating to schools.

The implementation of an enhanced morning filter in children's facilities to exclude children with clinical symptoms of COVID-19, as well as other acute infectious diseases, remains in force.
