Czech Republic Lifts Covid Restrictions for EU states

Covid-related restrictions were on Friday lifted for people entering the Czech Republic from other European Union states.

The Czech authorities also ended such requirements for people coming from Andorra, Iceland, Lichtenstein, Monaco, Norway, San Marino, Switzerland, and the Vatican.

People coming from these countries no longer need to fill in an arrival form, while confirmation of a negative Covid test, vaccination, or previous illness are also not required.

According to ČTK, the Ministry of Health will no longer issue the so-called traveling map, on which countries are divided into color categories according to the risk of coronavirus infection.

According to the current rules, the obligation to fill in the arrival form and prove vaccination, test, or past illness did not apply to citizens of the Czech Republic and other EU states if they arrived by individual transport.

Children under 12 years of age, international transport workers, diplomats, cross-border workers, and students staying in the Czech Republic for no more than 24 hours were also exempted.

8,163 new Covid-19 cases were recorded in the Czech Republic on Thursday, which was the lowest number on a weekday in a fortnight. There were also nearly 1,500 suspected reinfections.

The number of people in hospital with the coronavirus stood at 2,194, with 135 in critical condition. Eighty-nine Covid deaths have been recorded so far this week.
