From July 1, the maximum number of participants in cultural events should be increased to 5,000 outdoors and 2,000 indoors, under specific measures.
Prime Minister Andrej Babiš stated this in Sunday’s video on social networks. According to him, the government council for health risks and the cabinet will also address wearing masks in schools on Monday.
As of today, the capacity outside is unlimited
From Tuesday, June 8, there can be 1,000 people indoors and 2,000 outdoors at cultural events. The conditions of testing in cultural events have been unified with restaurants. t will also be possible to consume food presented in a buffet, though not in the auditorium.
From today, June 14th, the capacity of outdoor public spaces will no longer be limited, but standing spectators must maintain a distance of four square meters and still need to wear face masks. Indoor spaces are still reduced to half of the normal capacity and with seated spectators only.
In schools, masks do not have to be worn in most regions
As for the masks in schools, pupils and teachers currently do not have to wear them in most regions, with the exception of the South Bohemia, Zlín, and Liberec regions.
The commitment to have the nose and mouth covered remained for breaks and common school areas.
Those aged over 16 can now register for vaccination, and this will be extended to children between the age of 12 and 16 from the end of July, said Babiš.
The Moderna vaccine is currently going through the approval process for vaccination for this age group.
