ZAGREB, 12 June 2021 – With the epidemiological situation in Croatia favourable, the national COVID-19 response team has announced further changes to measures.
From today, cafes, bars, restaurants, bakeries, casinos and gaming machine clubs can operate until midnight (previously they had to close at 11 p.m.)
Cafes can still no longer open inside, and that is still only possible for establishments serving food.
Training is now also possible from today in school gymnasiums, and conferences and congresses can now be held also, as long as they observe all other measures, Davor Božinović, head of the national COVID-19 response team said on Friday.
Some technical details have been changed when crossing the border, so that now it is possible for people from the EU to enter Croatia as soon as they are vaccinated with the second dose, meaning it is not necessary to wait 14 days from receiving the second dose as was previously the case.
The rest of the provisions that have been in force so far have been extended.
“Public events and gatherings are still limited to a maximum of 100 people, which is important to point out, especially when the European Football Championship and the tourist season are ahead of us. It is recommended to all local governments not to organise public events such as mass viewing of football matches,” Božinović pointed out.
On Friday, Croatia reported that 134 new cases were registered. This was from 4,083 tests performed. There were also 13 more COVID-related deaths.
Currently, there are 1,207 active cases in Croatia, including 456 hospitalised patients of whom 44 are placed on ventilators. So far, more than 1.38 million people have received at least one shot of the COVID vaccine, and of them 656,325 have fully been vaccinated in Croatia.
