The national Covid-19 response team said on Friday that Covid-19 measures regarding the compulsory wearing of face masks, shop work as well as public transport and organized gatherings, would be extended until 15 August at least.
Children under the age of 12 will not be required to have Covid-19 certificates when attending gatherings with their parents.
Interior Minister Davor Bozinovic told a press conference that four anti-epidemic measures were being extended. The latest decisions refer to the compulsory wearing of face masks, special organization of work in stores and shopping malls, organisation of public transport, epidemiological measures restricting gatherings and other measures designed to prevent the spread of the contagion.
As for frequent questions as to whether children must have an EU digital Covid-19 certificate when attending gatherings at which such certificates are mandatory, the response team said that children under 12, who attend gatherings in the company of their parents or guardians, are not required to possess the certificate.
Bozinovic underscored that these restrictions apply to all of Croatia, however, he emphasised that separate, more stringent restrictions, adopted on 23 July, were already in force in Dubrovnik-Neretva, Split-Dalmatia, Sibenik-Knin, Zadar, Primorje-Gorski Kotar and Istria counties as well as the towns of Novalja, Senj and Karlobag in Lika-Senj County.
The latest Covid-19 measures are to remain in force until 15 August.
