Overview: New COVID-19 Restrictions Come Into Force

On Monday, Nov. 15, partial measures against the spread of coronavirus will come into effect in the Czech Republic. 



  • Healthcare workers who work in inpatient wards and are not vaccinated against Covid-19 must be tested at least once a week.
  • The validity of the tests for visits to social care facilities is also being shortened. An antigen test is now valid for one day and the PCR three days.



  • College students will need to wear respirators in their classrooms if there are more than 50 people in the classroom, as is the case with many lectures.
  • The second round of local testing will take place in the 23 districts with the highest incidence of the disease. On Nov. 22 and 29, comprehensive testing will take place in all schools in the Czech Republic.



  • Foreigners who are legal residents in the Czech Republic can receive a vaccine against coronavirus free of charge. The only thing that they have to pay for is the application of the vaccine itself.



  • In Austria, there is a lockdown for unvaccinated people. They can only go to work and to the store for everyday things. The measure will apply for 10 days. People who have unfinished vaccinations must submit a negative PCR test at check-up.
