Slavonia County, Karlovac County, and Moslavina are now marked in green, while the rest of Croatia is orange Like Metković reports

The ECDC map is updated weekly using data from Thursday at 23:59. Colors for individual areas are determined by combining the number of confirmed cases of infection in the past 14 days per 100 thousand inhabitants, and the percentage of the population tested.

Belgium is no longer in the red zone on the new map, and northern Italy, Germany, Austria, Poland, the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary have moved to the green zone. Much of France has moved to the orange zone.

Not all European countries use this map to decide on travel measures, but some, such as Lithuania, Croatia, and Cyprus, do. However, although other countries use their own models and parameters, the map has a symbolic weight and can significantly affect tourism.

According to the first data from the eVisitor system, today, the number of 200,000 tourists in one day was exceeded. Namely, 213,000 tourists are currently staying in Croatia, of which 183,000 are foreign tourists and 30,000 domestic.

“This is a confirmation that tourists see it as a safe destination for their stay and vacation. We have created all the preconditions for that, and compliance with epidemiological measures is still crucial to maintain this favorable epidemiological situation and achieve a successful season,” wrote Minister of Tourism Nikolina Brnjac on Facebook today.

EU member states agreed late last week to ease travel restrictions during the summer and fully vaccinated tourists will be exempt from vaccination or isolation. In contrast, the list of European regions from which it is “safe to travel” will be expanded.
