The Split-Dalmatia County Civil Protection Headquarters presented the Cro Care web platform through which tourists will be able to find out in just a few clicks where and how to get to coronavirus testing centers, report their health, but also contact their embassy and all emergency services they may need, reports HRTurizam

The Cro Care system works so that the platform automatically recognizes the user’s current location and thus shows them the nearest emergency services locations and their contacts. They can also use the navigation or fill out the necessary forms.

The platform currently contains 30 testing sites, 25 embassies and consulates, and nine health centers and hospitals in Split-Dalmatia County.

“This is one in a series of activities of the Split-Dalmatia County Civil Protection Headquarters to make it easier for our guests, both foreigners, and locals, to stay with us. The web platform is a significant step forward because our guests will have all the information in one place,” said Damir Gabrić, Chief of the County Civil Protection Headquarters.

“This application provides us with unlimited possibilities for expanding to other user needs such as pharmacies, police, etc. Furthermore, the system itself will provide the Tourist Board with vital statistics showing which users are from which countries, which language area they searched for the terms they needed, from hospitals, emergency services of covid testing centers, embassies, etc. The system is designed to recognize the user’s speaking area automatically, and the website is offered in their language with all the translated names of institutions and the necessary information that is there,” said the author of the application, Dejan Grepo from webLab.

Joško Stella, director of the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board, pointed out that their goal is to improve the application and expand it to other Dalmatian counties.

From next Thursday, July 1, thanks to the favorable epidemiological situation in the country, Croatia will further mitigate epidemiological measures. As confirmed by the National Civil Protection Headquarters, there will be no limit on the number of participants at events attended by people with digital EU certificates. Such events will be organized without a time limit.

The move will make it possible to organize a variety of events across the country. In addition, the organizers of the event will have access to a mobile application through which they will be able to read the QR code from the digital EU certificate, and the consent of the local civil protection headquarters will be required to hold the event.
