November 20, 2020 – Even stricter COVID-19 measures in Croatia will take effect from midnight on Sunday, November 22, and will last until December 15.

UPDATE: The measures are in effect from midnight on Sunday, November 22. The initial information Davor Bozinovic stated in the press release was incorrect.

“Since the beginning of the epidemic, 657872 people have been tested, and in the last 24 hours, 8321 people have been tested. The average age of those tested is 43. We have 1992 people in hospital, 217 are on a ventilator. That’s 29 new patients compared to yesterday. 279 people were admitted to the hospital, and 186 people were discharged.

We have 57 deaths, and a total of 1257 people have died since the beginning of the epidemic in Croatia.  >We can say that we have high numbers, but we do not have an increase. Croatia currently has a 14-day incidence rate of 837.7, which puts us in 22nd place on the list of EU countries,” said the head of the Croatian Public Health Institute, Krunoslav Capak, at a press conference of the National Civil Protection Headquarters.

“Following this situation with a growth rate that has stabilized to some extent, we concluded that we did not decline, and recording a decline is important to relieve the hospital system within the entire health system,” commented the Chief of the Headquarters, Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic.

“Public gatherings are now limited to 25 people instead of 50, wedding ceremonies to 50, private ceremonies to 10 instead of 15. At funerals, the number is also reduced to 25 people. Sports competitions will be held without spectators, and all public events will have to end at 10 pm. At 10 pm, all catering facilities will have to close,” said Božinović.

“Like shops, catering establishments must write down how many people are inside the space,” he explains. There is also ban on the sale of alcoholic beverages from 10 pm to 6 am.

“For art performances and cinemas, additional restrictions have been introduced, and at least 4 meters must be maintained for each person present,” he added.

“These decisions come into force at midnight,” concluded Božinović.
