August 28, 2020 – Croatia has been placed on Slovakia’s red list and Denmark’s orange list due to the spike in coronavirus cases. reports that Slovakia has expanded the list of countries on the red list, i.e., countries at high risk due to a rise in coronavirus cases. Croatia is on the red list, and the restrictions take effect on September 1.

As of September 2, the countries on the red list for coronavirus are Croatia, France, Spain, the Netherlands, Belgium, and Malta, Slovak Pravda reports.

They add that it is not recommended to travel to Greece, which is also high-risk.

Denmark put Croatia on the orange, “quarantine” list of countries for COVID-19 on Thursday, the foreign ministry said, warning not to travel to Croatia unless necessary.

“This week, France and Croatia have been added to the list of countries to which any unnecessary travel is discouraged due to the increased number of infections. The SSI (Institut Statens Serum) numbers show that the infection rate is 31.3 for France and 32 for Croatia. Thus, these countries are above the national criterion on the infection rate of 30,” according to the ministry’s website.

The Ministry tells those who are already on holiday in Croatia that they can stay until the previously planned date, but that they should minimize the risk of infection and should be tested when they return home, although they do not have to stay in isolation for 2 weeks.

If they decide to visit Croatia in the future, then they are invited to spend 14 days in quarantine on their return to Denmark.

As of midnight on August 29, Croats, as well as citizens of other “quarantine” countries such as Belgium, France, Romania, or Spain, will need to state the reason for their visit to enter Denmark.

The Croatian embassy in Copenhagen warned Croatian citizens on its Facebook page that it would be in the orange category of travel recommendations from midnight on August 29, and asked that they are informed in more detail about the conditions for entering Denmark.

The Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs updates its list of travel recommendations every week, based on data from the Statens Serum Institute.

In an interview with RTL, Capak commented on the measures that other countries are implementing against Croatia.

“Our incidence is high. We have more than 60 per 100,000 inhabitants in 14 days. We have a high rate, and it is expected that some countries will take some measures against us. But I must say that most of Europe is still green towards the citizens of Croatia and us. I can still travel to most European countries. We hope that now that the tourist season is waning, we will be able to reduce it and improve our indicators, based on which they will then remove us from the red and orange lists,” Capak said.
