CORONAVIRUS – CURRENT DEVELOPMENT
LAST UPDATE: April 19, 2022, 4:00 p.m.
LATEST NEWS: As of Thursday, April 14, 2022, the obligation to wear a respirator in public transport ended. It therefore remains only in health and social care facilities.
From Wednesday 13.4.2022, a positive PCR test is not required to prove the disease COVID-19. A positive antigen and symptoms will suffice, and these individuals should be isolated.
From Saturday April 9, it is possible to enter the territory of the Czech Republic without restrictions from all countries and for all persons.
The isolation of people with proven Covid-19 disease was extended to 7 days. At the same time, the quarantine obligation for persons after a risk contact was abolished. Isolation can still be completed no earlier than two days after the symptoms of the disease have subsided. Newly, people who have a repeat positive PCR test in less than thirty days will not need isolation, as test results may be affected by dead virus residues after the disease.
One preventive PCR test per month is currently covered by the health insurance, and tests indicated by a doctor or hygienic station also remain covered.
