As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Croatian covid certificates or mandatory testing for those who haven’t been vaccinated will be introduced as of this Monday.
One decision refers to the introduction of mandatory testing of all employees of healthcare institutions, companies performing healthcare activities and healthcare workers, the second refers to the mandatory testing of all employees in social care, and the third to patients, ie the introduction of special safety measures which healthcare institutions, companies that perform healthcare activities and private healthcare professionals are obliged to perform when receiving patients.
Employees without Croatian covid certificates must be tested twice a week. Those who refuse to be tested will not be allowed to go to work Healthcare and social workers who have not been vaccinated or have not recovered from the virus will need to be tested twice a week.
Employees who refuse testing or refuse to present Croatian covid certificate cannot remain on their employer’s premises, it is stated in the Decision.
Rules for patients in hospitals
Patients coming to hospital for a planned hospitalisation or planned procedure, childbirth, parents or guardians staying with children and persons coming to accompany patients and visit hospitalised persons will be required to provide a Croatian covid certificate or other appropriate evidence of their vaccination status, proof of their recovery or their recently obtained negative test result. Everything will be checked by authorised persons of the healthcare provider themselves.
Children under the age of 12 who are accompanied by patients because they have no one to stay at home with or are visiting hospitalised parents or siblings don’t need to have a certificate or other evidence of vaccination, recovery or a negative test result.
Those needing emergency treatment are also exempt.
