As Poslovni Dnevnik writes, Ivana Pavic Simetin, the deputy director of the Croatian Institute of Public Health, was a guest on the Dobro jutro, Hrvatska (Good morning, Croatia) show on HRT during which she commented on the easing of Croatia’s anti-epidemic measures. She also revealed some further details.

She revealed that there will be 120 people allowed to attend Croatian wedding celebrations, but they must meet one of three conditions: they must have a negative PCR test result, they must be fully vaccinated, or have proof that they have contracted and recovered from the disease caused by the novel coronavirus in the last six months. As she said, such guests will probably have to come to Croatian wedding celebrations with a certificate stating clearly which group they belong to, and on top of that, the guest list will have to be submitted a few days in advance so that all this can be checked later.

“Our joint efforts and refraining from various activities have led to a favourable epidemiological situation. Over the last few weeks, we’ve had a big drop in the infection rate, so the National Civil Protection Directorate made the decision to loosen up some of our measures and make a sort of return to the lifestyle we were used to before,” said Pavic Simetin.

“As far as I’m aware, the decision of the National Civil Protection Directorate will be valid as of Friday, and the measure which placed a limit on 25 people rise to 100. We’ll also open restaurants indoors, lift the number of people permitted to attend funerals, so these are all some good messages we’re getting,” she described.

“This is all going to be gradual, it’s not about opening everything up right away, there’s also going to be a difference in how people behave in restaurants and how they behave in cafes. There are more people there, more people come into contact with each other, it isn’t always possible to determine which people were there, whereas a restaurant is more of a stationary activity, one sits down in the company of others, if someone tests positive, we can find out who they were around,” explained Pavic Simetin.

“There will be a limit of up to 120 people for Croatian wedding celebrations, provided that the person has a negative PCR result, has recovered within 6 months or has been vaccinated. That will be the main strategy as far as weddings are concerned,” she revealed for HRT.
