The Croatian Civil Protection Headquarters decided on Friday on the temporary prohibition and restriction of border crossings and thus changed the border crossing measures for citizens of European Union countries, i.e., countries and/or regions of the Schengen area and countries associated with the Schengen area, reports HRTurizam.

The new decision will allow entry to the Republic of Croatia for people coming from the Schengen area, who are vaccinated with two doses of vaccine, as soon as they are vaccinated with the second dose, and will not have to wait 14 days.

With the new decision, cafes can now work up to midnight, but still only outdoors, not indoors.

“This is primarily about the working hours of catering facilities, but also other activities that have so far been limited to 11 pm. From tonight, midnight on June 12, they will be able to work up to midnight. This includes catering facilities, bakeries, casinos, slot machine clubs. This also applies to public events, gatherings, and manifestations,” said Davor Bozinovic.

It was pointed out at the press conference that the Council’s recommendation would be that Covid recovery is recognized plus one vaccine dose for Covid confirmation to be obtained. For European confirmation, it is a PCR test and one dose, and in Croatia, it can be an antigen test plus one dose.

More than 2 million doses of vaccine have been used.

On Thursday, June 10, 2021, 55,960 doses of vaccine were used, of which 16,250 were the first doses. Thus, the total number of vaccine doses used reached 2.04 million, while 1.39 million people were vaccinated with at least one dose.

The highest coverage of vaccinated with the first dose was achieved in the City of Zagreb (40.2% of the total population, or 48.8% of the adult population), and the completed vaccination was achieved in the highest coverage in Sisak-Moslavina County (22.3% of the total, ie 26, 8% of the adult population).
