September 29, 2020 – The latest coronavirus news, as the Croatian National Institute of Public Health, also known as CNIPH updates recommendations for artistic performances, cultural programs, and events.

The Croatian National Institute of Public Health (CNIPH), in cooperation with the Ministry of Culture and Media, has developed updated recommendations for holding professional art performances, cultural programs, and events, which relate to ensuring adequate physical distance during the coronavirus epidemic.

Thus, a distance of two meters between performers of singing parts and musicians with wind instruments and a distance of four meters between visitors and performers on stage is recommended.

When arriving and leaving the space, it is recommended to keep the physical distance of visitors, contractors, and staff of 1.5 meters. The physical distance during the program must be provided by the organizer with seats 1.5 meters apart, and exceptionally, during cultural programs and low-risk events, the physical distance between visitors from one seat is allowed, with the mandatory wearing of masks during the program.

Low-risk programs are programs with exclusively seated audiences and active audience engagement, such as singing.

Indoors and outdoors, only seating areas are recommended, which should be marked and at least 1.5 meters apart. The allowed number of visitors indoors is 500 and outdoors 1000 people.

Also, CNIPH states that a dance floor in the function of a dance space is not allowed.

The recommendations also define the required distance between bar tables, their arrangement, method of numbering, and the setting of physical barriers that will create rows of visitors 1.5 meters wide.

In the event you must deviate from the recommendations, the organizer is obliged to request the approval of the competent civil protection service, which will coordinate the final decision with the competent county headquarters.
