Updated restrictions applicable nation-wide and locally. As of July 27, 2020, the max. number of participants at an indoor event is 500 in one sector, at an outdoor event it is 1,000 persons. Different measures apply to local hotspots.
On August 3, 2020, a framework system with a key role of hygienic stations in it was launched by the Government - visualized as a map of risk on a weekly basis. Four levels of alert will indicate community spread of the virus at the level of municipality (okres). The map serves as a recommendation for preparedness for reaction:
0 - white, no or minimum risk of the spread within the municipality/okres
1 - green, sporadic incidence without community spread
2 - yellow, initiated community spread
3 - red, increased and persistent community spread within the municipality/okres, if necessary, whole region can be indicated as red
The traffic lights system is not as much based on the Covid-19 incidence, but focuses on the situations when the source of the spread is not clear (uncontrolled community spread) and on the capacity to handle the situation (testing points, labs, hospitals, etc). The evaluation is based on 20-25 criteria.
