ZAGREB, May 15 (Hina) – The national civil protection authority has decided to lift restrictions as of May 18 on public coastal liner transport, which will enable the restoration of the sailing schedule.
Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic said on Friday this decision put out of force decisions on the extraordinary Oilib-Silba-Premuda-Zadar line, which was introduced to supply islands and the extraordinary Zadar-Ancona freight ferry line.
Asked by the press if the government would be responsible in case of layoffs, as warned by the Croatian Employers Association on Thursday, he said this was not in the Interior Ministry’s remit and that if the Economy Ministry asked the national civil protection authority about it, “it will get an answer.”
Bozinovic said that because of the favourable epidemiological situation in Croatia, the authority would no longer hold press briefings over the weekend.
The next press conference will be on Monday, while over the weekend the authority will issue press releases with the latest information on COVID-19 infections.
