The Czech Republic is under a state of emergency till 28 March (text of regulation in Czech).
People cannot leave their district* (“okres”). Exceptions apply to travelling to work, doctor or public authority. The Brno-City and Brno-Outskirts have been united in one for this purpose, and travelling between these need not be supported by any confirmation. In case of travelling to other districts, it is necessary to follow the instructions by the Ministry of Interior.
Leisure time activities can be performed on the territory of a municipality only (in the case of Brno, territory of a municipality means the whole city of Brno; it is not necessary to limit to a single city district).
Only a surgical face mask or a respirator can be used as protection of mouth and nose, and in certain cases (such as shops, public transport, or health facilities) a respirator solely. It is necessary to have one’s mouth and nose always covered in built-up areas of villages and towns, regardless of the distance to other people.
Kindergartens are closed and pupils of 1st and 2nd grades of primary schools switch to distance education.
*Please note there is a difference between “district” (“okres”) and “city district” (or “municipal ward” – “městská část”). “District” is an area defined by a large city by itself, or by several towns or smaller communities (see information on Wikipedia). “City district” or “municipal ward” is a part of a city (see city districts of Brno).
The City of Brno has launched a public charitable collection. Collected funds will be used to make good damages and solve problems caused by the coronavirus. In the first instance, they will be used in the area of social care.
