Anti-coronavirus measures: June 15 update

Starting Monday, people in Czechia no longer need to wear face masks outdoors - even in places where social distancing is not possible, the only exception being outdoor mass events.

The government previously ended the requirement to wear face coverings outdoors from May 25 - on condition that people can maintain a distance of two metres. Face masks are still obligatory in most indoor spaces - such as public transport or shops.

Also starting Monday, Czechs and foreigners from most EU & Schengen Area countries can travel to Czech republic without restrictions. Negative covid-19 tests will be required for travellers from Portugal, Sweden, and the Silesian Voivodeships in Poland (foreigners & Czechs alike), Belgium and Great Britain (foreigners only).

The limit for the number of participants of outdoor mass events will increase from 500 to 2,500. The organizer of the event has to divide the area into sectors - up to five with 500 people each. Participants won't be allowed to move between the sectors. They will have to cover their faces and keep a distance of 1.5 metres from people not from their household.
