Restrictions due to Covid
The situation with Covid in the Czech Republic has been improving significantly during last months from very bad numbers in February and March. The vaccination is also going faster.
There are still some regulations. (e.g. required tests/vaccination certificates/certificate on Covid in last 6 months – the data in EU Covid pass) for some places like restaurants, events, conferences; carrying masks in many places indoor.
Since July 1, the limit for inside events (including congresses) is 2 000 persons, and maximum 75 % capacity of rooms.
