Croatian Anti-Epidemic Measures Extended, One Change Coming

By 12 March 2021

March the 12th, 2021 - The Croatian anti-epidemic measures are set to be extended yet again as infection rates begin to look less and less favourable across the country.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, as has become very much the norm over the last pandemic-dominated year, the Croatian National Civil Protection Headquarters/Directorate held its regular press conference today.

Since the current Croatian anti-epidemic measures are due to remain in force until March the 15th, which is now quickly approaching, Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic said at today´s press conference that the Headquarters will make several more decisions.

"The headquarters will make four national and one local decision on the necessary Croatian anti-epidemic measures in order to limit gatherings and introduce new measures to prevent the spread of the virus.

There second decision is on the change of the public organisation of passenger transport, then the change of the decision on the special introduction of the organisation of work for the trade activity and the decision on the temporary ban on border crossings in the Republic of Croatia. These are horizontal decisions and the application of all these decisions has now been extended until the 31st of March, and they enter into force on the 13th of March (when the current measures are due to expire).

"All decisions remain the same, only one decision changes. The permitted number of people partaking in cultural programmes will be determined through the Croatian Institute of Public Health. It will be possible to increase or indeed decrease that number," he added.

“Detailed protocols of the Croatian anti-epidemic measures will be prescribed through a recommendation from the Croatian Institute of Public Health. The decision of the Headquarters will not be something that now needs to be awaited, but the Croatian Institute of Public Health may choose to tighten up or loosen certain measures depending on the situation at hand.
