"Rehearsal" Croatian Events Begin, People Will be Divided into 2 Groups

May the 11th, 2021 - As the coronavirus pandemic continues, Croatia is trying to prepare for yet another summer tourist season with large question marks hanging over its head despite the vaccination process picking up both here and in our emitting markets. Croatian events, such as concerts and other such events will be an important topic to look into as the season approaches.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, the director of the Croatian Institute of Public Health, Krunoslav Capak, said on Monday that intensively discussed trial-controlled Croatian events with several visitors would be held this week in the style of rehearsals, and expressed confidence that such pilot projects would go well and that there would be no new cases of infection as a result of them.

"It's something that is being discussed intensively at the moment. There was some information recently from the catering industry and the wedding industry about it. There will be rehearsals, in fact a project in which we will gather two different populations of people in two places,'' said Capak at a press conference within the scope of the Zivjeti zdravo/Live healthy project.

There will be 80 people in one place, and 120 in another. It will bring together people who have been vaccinated, those who have a certificate of having overcome the disease caused by the novel coronavirus or those who will be tested for the virus just before the event takes place. After seven days, they will undertake PCR tests to see if there has been any spread of the disease during the trial Croatian events.

"We don't expect that there will be any new cases of infection as a result of this, and some similar activities have already been carried out in other places in world. Some also did PCR tests after such events and they got good results, there were no new cases. We hope that all this will go well together and that we will enter June in a more relaxed atmosphere,'' said Capak.

Since the rehearsal Croatian events idea is a pilot project, the organisers must know exactly who is coming and those individuas must have all the documents needed for epidemiological monitoring following the event, he explained.
