Coronavirus COVID-19 outbreak
The Government of the Czech Republic, on the proposal of the Minister of the Interior, approved the declaration of the state of emergency in the whole territory of the Czech Republic. The state of emergency is declared for 30 days, as of 13th March 2020 from 2 PM.
As of 16 March, free movement is limited with the exception of travel to and from work and necessary travels to ensure basic human needs (e.g. foodstuffs, pharma shopping, helping older family members). Officially extended until April 11, 6AM.
Measures currently in place in the Czech Republic, which include a requirement to wear face coverings in both indoor and outdoor spaces. This means that people will need a face mask or similar covering on the street and in parks, as well as in shops, government offices, and other public places.
In addition to this protective measure, all shops from 8AM – 10AM are only for seniors (65 years and older).
This also means that businesses including restaurants, cafes, and pubs, will need to remain closed to the public through at least April 11. Some restaurants still offer take-away or delivery, however.
EURAXESS Czech Republic is closely monitoring developments regarding the spread of the COVID-19 coronavirus, following the latest reports and providing updates.
