As announced yesterday, at today's press conference, the Headquarters presented new measures for the entire Adriatic, and not, as it was thought, only for the Dalmatian counties where the incidence is highest and where vaccination coverage is lower compared to the rest of the country.
There were 176 new cases of infection in Croatia. We have a growth of 35 percent over last week. The lowest incidence is in the County of Istria, and the highest in the County of Zadar - they point out from the Headquarters.
Measures are being introduced for the Dubrovnik-Neretva, Split-Dalmatia, Šibenik-Knin, Zadar, Primorje-Gorski Kotar, Istria and the town of Novalja.
How it transmits Vecernji list, ban on holding all public events and gatherings attended by more than 50 people, unless it is a public gathering attended only by persons with EU covid certificates and will not be attended by more than 1000 people, and the CZ local government headquarters are responsible for the same and the competent county headquarters gave their consent.
Public events, gatherings and festivities of all kinds can last up to 24 hours. Private ceremonies and gatherings of all kinds, including wedding ceremonies, are allowed with the observance of all epidemiological measures, if there are no more than 15 people at the wedding ceremonies. More than that is only possible with Covid confirmations.
Event organizers must send the maintenance intention to the local headquarters no later than 7 days before the event and request prior consent. The competent headquarters is obliged to make a decision within 2 days and submit it to the county headquarters, which must also make a decision within 2 days. If the two headquarters cannot agree on the fulfillment of the conditions of such an event or gathering then the final decision is made by the National Headquarters.
The decision applies from Monday, July 26, and the measures will be in force until August 15.
As a reminder, as of Monday (July 26, 2021), it introduces a change for entry into Croatia for tourists coming from Great Britain, Cyprus and Russia.
Due to the worsening of the epidemiological situation in United Kingdom, Cyprus and the Russian Federation, as an additional measure for all persons coming from these countries, before entering the territory of the Republic of Croatia, a negative test for SARS-CoV-2 performed in the home country is required, regardless of vaccination status or overcoming COVID-19 disease.
In order to preserve the status of a safe tourist destination, we have further tightened the entry from third countries with a high incidence rate, and we are preparing a new set of necessary epidemiological measures, which will be applied from Monday, said Bozinovic.
"Compared to other tourism competitors in the EU, Croatia is the safest tourist destination! Do we need better motivation to vaccinate and respect epidemiological measures? Be responsible, get vaccinated and save the #SafeStayInCroatia tourist season”Vili Beroš announced yesterday.
