The future Minister of Health Vlastimil Válek has stated that extending the state of emergency will be a priority subject of discussion of the incoming government, which is set to be officially named on Friday. 

As Seznam Zprávy reports, some politicians of the ruling coalition Together and PirSTAN do not expect an extension of the state of emergency. Only a further growth in the number of patients with coronavirus could change that decision.

Válek added that the matter “it’s still under discussion and solution phase”.

This could mean that bars, pubs, and restaurants would remain open during the night-time New Year’s Eve celebrations.

“My personal opinion is that now it seems that an extension will not be necessary,” said deputy chairman Jakub Michálek.

“Unless the epidemic situation worsens significantly, I do not consider the extension of the state of emergency to be the right step,” added Vít Kaňkovský, vice-chairman KDU-ČSL.

On November 25, 2021, the Czech government declared a nationwide 30-days state of emergency aimed at countering the spread of the coronavirus epidemic.

Restaurants and pubs have to close at 10 pm.

A maximum of 1,000 spectators with valid vaccination certificates or proof of having recovered from COVID-19 within the past six months are permitted at cultural and sporting events and no more than 100 people are allowed to attend indoor parties or celebrations.

16,691 new cases of COVID19 were recorded in the Czech Republic on Tuesday. The figure was around 2,800 lower than for the same day last week.
