Nightclubs in Croatia to Work Again? Capak Comments on Mitigating Covid Measures

March 16, 2022 - Nightclubs in Croatia could soon reopen as epidemiological measures in the country will be mitigated. 

COVID certificates are decreasingly sought after in institutions, and Croatia seeks to ease measures this week. Dnevnik Nova TV reporter Martina Bolšec Oblak is the first to find out the details from director of the CNIPH Krunoslav Capak.

Mitigating epidemiological measures have been announced in Croatia. 

"We have always paid attention to the balance between the economy, social life, and epidemiological measures that allow the epidemic to be kept under control as much as possible. All that remains are a few measures. What we can do is increase the number of people at gatherings. So far, it was 50 (indoors) or 100 (outdoors), now we will increase it to 100 or 200, and with COVID certificates, the number will be unlimited. Still, everyone should adhere to epidemiological measures," said the director of the CNIPH, Krunoslav Capak.

For the time being, catering facilities are only open until midnight, but changes could be introduced in that sector as well.

"We are thinking of extending that time because it allows nightclubs, slot machine clubs, and so on longer working hours. So it will probably be until 2 am. It is also being discussed, and a decision will be made in the next 24 to 48 hours," he said.

Sport and culture are also in the package.

"We will make some concessions when it comes to sporting and cultural events. For example, we will allow stadiums to be full with COVID certificates, and if they don't have certificates, there is a provision on the distance between spectators. As for cultural events, we had restrictions on four square meters without COVID certificates. Now, we will abolish those four meters where COVID certificates are required and give in to cultural and artistic performances," Capak explained.

More and more people in public transport and shops are not wearing masks. "Masks remain as a measure in all indoor and outdoor areas where space cannot be maintained, but masks are an epidemiological measure we had before vaccination and COVID certification, and they to some extent protect against the spread of all respiratory infections including corona," he added.

There will also be a change in the isolation of kindergarten children. "This measure is not the subject of this decision, but it is a matter of HZJZ regulation in agreement with the Ministry of Science and Education. It is being discussed, and it is possible that the self-isolation measure for kindergarten children will be abolished in the next few days," he said. "We only have tested at school. Therefore, there would be no testing among kindergarten children, and we would not know if someone is asymptomatic, but if the child is sick, they stay at home. If they are healthy, they go to kindergarten normally," concluded Capak.

Capak: Relaxation of COVID Restrictions Still Being Considered

ZAGREB, 12 March 2022 - Croatian Public Health Institute director Krunoslav Capak said on Saturday that the possible relaxation of coronavirus restrictions, announced for next week, was still being carefully considered given a slight increase in new cases in recent days.

"Since we have had a slight increase in infections, I cannot say if there will be a further relaxation of measures," Capak told reporters in Zagreb during a public health campaign marking Colorectal Cancer Awareness Month.

Even though some media outlets have announced that the restrictions on hospitality establishments will be eased and that nightclubs will be allowed to stay open until 2 am, Capak did not confirm this.

"A possible relaxation is still being considered, and what is certain is that COVID passes will remain mandatory for healthcare and social welfare services," he said.

The slight increase in new cases will be taken into account in deciding on the relaxation of restrictions, and Capak said that Croatia was not an isolated case in this regard as most European countries were in a similar situation.

One of the reasons is the more infectious BA.2 subvariant of the Omicron variant of the SARS-CoV-2 virus, which is becoming dominant in western Europe, people thinking that the epidemic is over, resumption of school classes, and cold weather, as a result of which people spend more time indoors.

Capak noted that the slight increase in new infections did not mean the beginning of a new wave of the epidemic and that it was yet to be seen what would happen in the coming days.

"The increase in new infections is a warning that the epidemic is not over and that we should comply with the epidemiological measures which are still in force," Capak said, adding that the turnout for vaccination was not satisfactory.

"People have given up, they are still postponing vaccination thinking that the epidemic is over. There are enough vaccines and vaccination should continue because it is a very powerful weapon," Capak said, calling on people to observe hygiene rules, wear face masks, maintain a physical distance and air out their rooms.
