ZAGREB, March 19 (Hina) – Croatia went into lockdown mode today with all public gatherings banned and all non-essential shops closed due to the outbreak of COVID-19.

Shops selling necessary food and hygienic products, including such shops in shopping malls remain open. Open-air markets also have remained open.

Pharmacies, petrol stations, bakeries, newsstands, shops selling baby food and pet food shops are exempt from the ban. Their opening hours have not been shortened so as to avoid crowds of buyers.

Croatians have been asked to stay at home and limit their social contacts. Employees are also asked to work from home, where it is possible. All public gatherings are banned.
