Nudists who sunbathed without protective face masks in the Czech Republic have been reprimanded by police and warned that clothes may be optional but masks are not.
More than a hundred people, including nudists, descended on the Czech spa town of Lázně Bohdaneč to enjoy the good weather.
But with the Czech government insisting that face masks be worn at all times in public, police soon arrived to enforce the rules.
‘Unfortunately, the sunbathing citizens were in one place in larger numbers and some did not even have a mask,’ police spokeswoman Markéta Janovská told local media.
‘Citizens can be without clothes in places designated for this purpose, but they must have their mouths covered and must observe the numbers in which they can go into nature.’
Officers checked on 150 people enjoying the town’s lakes and found roughly half without the required protection.
