Currently valid governmental regulations

UPDATED: 30 July 2020, 13:05

  • Since 25 July people have been obliged  to wear a face mask or another covering of nose and mouth at all organized indoor mass events of more than 100 people. This means organized music, social, cultural or sports events. This measure applies also to private events such as weddings and funerals. This measure does NOT apply to shops, restaurants or public transport. 
  • Events up to 1,000 people are allowed; with indoor events limited to 500 people. Mass events held in premises with separated sectors (e.g. sports stadium sectors): up to five sectors for 1,000 people each (i.e. altogether 5,000 people) can be open at a time; in case of indoor events the number is limited to 500 people for each sector (i.e. max. 2,500 people). The sectors need to have their own entrances, participants cannot move from one sector to another and they should keep the 1.5-metre distance from each other.
  • When travelling from most EU countries, people do not have to have a negative COVID-19 test when crossing the Czech borders, neither they have to undergo a quarantine. The list of countries to be updated on a weekly basis can be found at the Ministry of Health website. Please watch also conditions for entering the destination country, e. g. at the Ministry of Interior website.
  • Since 26 May the time dedicated to senior citizens for their shopping in large shops does not apply.
  • The governmental ban of visits to hospitals and nursing homes was lifted on 25 May. Max. 2 adults may come for a visit, they have to wear a face mask, disinfect their hands and undergo temperature measuring. If possible, the visits will take place in outdoor areas or in designated spaces; at multi-bed rooms the visitors should be separated from other clients by a screen or similar divider. Always check individual institution’s website for current information before the visit.
  • Since Tuesday 28 April 2020 parking at blue zones in cities and towns is paid for again. The Government has cancelled the crisis measure which had decided about this. Residential parking in Brno is thus operated as usual again. The payment for the parking fee can be made via parking meters or mobile phone. 
All currently valid measures can be found at the website of the Ministry of Health.

Recommendations for citizens

  • Avoid unnecessary contacts with other people.

  • Keep safe distance of at least two metres in a group of people (e.g. in a queue). 
  • Follow hygiene rules properly, especially hygiene of your hands. Wash your hands for 30 seconds at least and use disinfectants.
  • Use disinfectant wipes also for your personal items (e.g. mobile phones) regularly. 
  • When sneezing or coughing, use ideally disposable tissues  and cover your mouth with your arm/sleeve, not hand! (the droplets may spread further).
