After four and a half months, the Croatian National Public Health Institute has enacted new measures for residents in nursing homes. Namely, from next week, relatives and families can visit residents in nursing homes, and residents can also leave under strict epidemiological conditions, the head of the Zagreb Office for Social Protection and Persons with Disabilities, Romana Galić, told HRT’s Dnevnik.

“Upon arrival at the nursing home, the visits will take place in the external premises. Strict epidemiological measures will apply for visits to immobile users, and the visit will take place according to a pre-determined schedule,” she said.

The relaxation of measures is possible because, for example, in Zagreb’s homes for the elderly and infirm, about 2,200 users have already received the coronavirus vaccine, and 1,600 of them have received the second dose of the vaccine. Also, about 600 users were infected with and have recovered from COVID-19.

“We will enable those who had COVID in the last 90 days and those who received their second dose of the vaccine to leave their homes. So, from Tuesday, they will be able to leave the institutions, after four and a half months,” said Romana Galić.
