The Czech Government announced that starting Friday, 24 April 2020, they will allow travelling abroad for reasons other than work.
When returning to the country, Czech citizens and foreigners have to present a negative test for coronavirus no older than four days, or agree to a two-week quarantine.
Health Minister Adam Vojtěch also specifies that commuters will be able to cross the border daily if they present a negative test every 14 days. The still functioning state of emergency does not allow, however, for tourism inside the country.
Minister Vojtěch also announced the cancellation of certain bans regarding the free movement of people.
“The Czech Government will cancel restrictions on free movement as of Friday, April 24 and allow groups of up to 10 people to meet in public. So far, public gatherings were limited to two people,” he said during a televised press conference.
Moreover, the Government declared they are speeding up the reopening of certain establishments. Such developments are possible due to the country’s management of the situation and the positive improvements registered.
The Institution had declared a state of emergency on March 12, banning all travel to and from high-risk countries. Citizens inside the country also had to respect a set of rules regarding free movement.
