The Croatian Sunday work ban for shops and other such facilities has been a topic that has generated a lot of discussion, with both fierce proponents and opponents and a lot of arguments on both sides. It seems however, that the restriction on the operation of shops on Sundays in Croatia will be lifted.

As Poslovni Dnevnik writes on the 26th of May, 2020, the National Civil Protection Headquarters have announced their decision to lift the Croatian Sunday work ban in a statement.

Due to the now favourable epidemiological situation in Croatia, and by amending the previously introduced decision on the working hours and the manner of operation in the trade sector during the COVID-19 epidemic, the Croatian Sunday work ban will be lifted, in full compliance with general anti-epidemic measures and special instructions and recommendations of the Croatian Institute of Public Health, stated the National Civil Protection Headquarters.

By amending the aforementioned decision on the special operation of shops and other facilities in the trade sector during the declared epidemic of the new coronavirus, COVID-19, it has now been made possible to sell flowers at markets, as well all other products that were sold before the anti-epidemic restrictions were introduced, in compliance with the general anti-epidemic measures and the special instructions and recommendations provided by the Croatian Institute. for public health.
