Lauren Simmonds

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 24th of November, 2020, at the proposal of the Civil Protection Headquarters of Zagreb County, the necessary epidemiological measures for this area are now being introduced. These measures will be in force in Zagreb County from today until December the 31st, 2020.

Here is the list of measures now in full force across Zagreb County:

A maximum of 50 persons may be present at professional and amateur artistic performances, programmes and cinema screenings in strict compliance with all prescribed epidemiological measures and special recommendations and instructions of the Croatian Institute of Public Health.

The organisers of all public events and gatherings that have been permitted in Zagreb County, as well as the owners of catering/hospitality facilities, are obliged to carry out the intensified supervision of compliance with the newly introduced epidemiological measures.

There is the mandatory requirement to use face masks or medical masks in all enclosed/indoor spaces where public or economic activities are being carried out, as well as at events, cultural, religious programmes or other social gatherings if it isn't possible to maintain a physical distance of at least 2 metres between individuals.

Visits to users of accommodation services in social care institutions for the elderly and infirm are prohibited.

Those using the aforementioned services are forbidden to leave such premises unless it is for medical reasons or other justified reasons when that decision is made by the director or another authorised person.

The users of such accommodation services within the social welfare system are allowed outside to backyards, terraces etc with the obligatory wearing of face masks or medical masks and the maintaining of social distancing of at least 1.5 metres.

The implementation of additional precautionary measures when returning such users of the aforementioned accommodation services from undergoing hospital treatment is necessary (avoiding contact with other users for 14 days, etc.)

It has been recommended to the providers of auch accommodation services within the social welfare system to enable users to make longer and more frequent telephone calls and, if they have such possibilities, to enable video calls.

It has been recommended that the employees of healthcare institutions, kindergartens and schools, as well as the employees of social service providers don't participate in organised gatherings of a larger number of people.

It has been recommended that self-government units in Zagreb County prohibit the rental and other use of rooms and other facilities owned by them for all gatherings.

It has been recommended that the residents of Zagreb County don't travel outside of the borders of the Republic of Croatia unless there are urgent business, personal or other reasons for that.
