Czech Republic, May 28 (BD) – At today’s press conference, the government announced further relaxation of measures against the covid-19 epidemic, following a Supreme Court ruling declaring that the current measures are illegal under pandemic law. The changes to the extraordinary measures were approved by the government at an extraordinary meeting on Friday.
On Friday morning, Health Minister Adam Vojtech announced further easing of measures against epidemics, which is due to take effect on Monday. Restaurants, bars, music clubs, swimming pools, bowling alleys and casinos will be able to open their indoor spaces, closed to the public until now due to government regulations. The opening conditions are similar to those that apply to restaurant gardens and terraces, which means that indoor dances and concerts are still prohibited. The requirement for a negative covid-19 test remains for indoor and outdoor installations.
Customers and guests wishing to enter these interior spaces will be required to show proof of a negative test, vaccination or recent treatment for Covid-19. A self-administered antigen test used to go to school or work can also be used to enter these establishments.
Catering establishments and other services must comply with specific rules. For example, restaurants, bars and cafes should not accommodate more than four people at a table, with sufficient space between them. Swimming pools, sports fields and casinos can allow people to enter up to one person per 15 square meters, as long as a distance of two meters is maintained. Wellness establishments will only be allowed to fill 30% of their normal capacity and saunas are prohibited from heating above 80 ° C or using crystal cooling and ice wells.
The Ministry of Health has added a national vaccination certificate to the entry requirements for restaurants and other establishments. The conditions for their recognition as proof of entry are the same as for Czech citizens, i.e. 22 days should have passed since the first dose of an incomplete vaccine, 22 days to 9 months since the first dose of full vaccine and 14 days up to 9 months for a single dose vaccine.
The lifting of restrictions also affects mass events. From now on, it will be possible to organize conferences and educational events for up to 250 people, with a maximum occupancy rate of 50% of the venue. Choirs can start rehearsing and perform with up to 30 participants.
The ministry also announced that national vaccination certificates have been added to the protective measures for entry into the Czech Republic. Those with such a certificate in English will not need to present a negative covid-19 test when entering the Czech Republic from Hungary, Germany, Poland, Austria, Slovakia, Slovenia or Croatia; travel will be possible after the first dose of vaccination without any restrictions. In addition, Foreign Minister Jakub Kulhánek said the Czech Republic will be open to fully vaccinated tourists from Israel, Australia, Thailand, New Zealand, Singapore and South Korea from Tuesday.
