November 28, 2020 – As new COVID-19 restrictions come into effect all over Croatia, Krunoslav Capak puts a figure on fines for not wearing masks in public transport.
The Director of the Croatian Institute of Public Health, Krunoslav Capak, has revealed at the Future Z health congress that the fines for not wearing masks will be between 100 and 200 euros, reports Index.hr.
“When we introduced those measures a little over 10 days ago, our curve started to level out, we had one slight rise in the curve and we thought it was the peak. However, last week our number started to rise sharply again. We do not have projections of the figures, but we expect that the trend will be reversed,” Capak replied, commenting on the question of how long he thinks stricter epidemiological measures will be in place.
“The text is ready for changes to the law, except for how much the fines will be. I don’t know how accurate the fines are, but we think it should be 100 to 200 euros for not wearing masks in public transport, for example,” Capak revealed.
“We think that the measures must be as they are, they can only be stricter in the counties. By no means more lenient,” he commented on the disagreement of some counties with the measures.
All bars and restaurants in Croatia are closed from today until December 21. Many other facilities are also closed or have severe restrictions on numbers. Others, such as places of worship, remain open.
