Government to Raise Limits on Participants at Indoor and Outdoor Events

In view of the improving epidemiological situation, the government has agreed to loosen coronavirus restrictions faster than originally planned. 

As of Sunday, August 1, the attendance limit for public events at indoor venues will be raised to 3,000 people and 7,000 people at outdoor venues.

The changes at the press conference after Monday’s government meeting were announced by the Minister of Health Adam Vojtěch (ANO).

Mandatory space for standing spectators will be raised from four to two square meters per person.

Dancing will once again be allowed at dance clubs and discos. Swimming pools will be able to operate at full capacity, galleries and exhibitions at 75 percent capacity.

Other changes will come into effect from August 1. There will be no capacity limit in swimming pools (at the moment operators can fill it to 75 percent).

All visits to Czech castles and ZOOs will be without admission restrictions for groups with less than 20 members.

According to Vojtěch, the government agreed to loosen coronavirus restrictions on the basis that the epidemic situation is stagnant. “We do not observe any major negative aspects, considering both the number of new positive cases or the number of hospitalizations,” he added.

The Health Ministry said on Monday that the Delta variant is now dominant in the Czech Republic, accounting for 80 to 90 percent of infections.
